Most non-enthusiasts give car people wash kits, terrible steering wheel covers, “Miata parking only” plaques, etc. Color coded, ball end hex keys? Didn’t know I needed those, but they’ve been surprisingly handy.
Different friend, a week later: “hey, what size for the steering wheel hub screws?”
Friend: “...why are you like this. I thought you wanted help”
Me: “no, really! Look”
Friend: “right. Uhm. I’m going to get started fixing the battery tray, you can do the dashboard removal”
