    So an opportunity popped up with a really good find, so I went and bought it for $500!!! This really shows you what you can do to find your first project car, find a budget suv, etc with minimal risk and a lot of potential reward!!! We used all common hand tools and did this job at home ourselves! Craftsman was bought by Stanley and now they have decent tools for the price! Worth taking a look at for sure! I messed with the 150 piece set for the first time and I liked it. It got the job done and I think you guys looking for your first set would find it to be a good starter set! Here is the link to the tool sets:

    I bought a 2010 X-Type a few days ago, with just 50,000 miles on the clock, for under 2,000 quid. It was pretty dirty inside, like this one, and had a "gearbox fault" which turned out to be just a sticky turbo actuator. Of course it's always a risk to buy a car that's not working perfectly, but when it turns out to be a minor problem, and you fix it, there's no better feeling.

    I’m sure he has mentioned it in another video, but Clean titles mean that they don’t have any major (according to the state’s standards) repairs that may make this unsafe to drive. Totaled means that it has been in an accident that it was deemed unworthy of being on the road. Salvaged means that it has received repairs to make roadworthy again, but are often expensive to ensure. Always check the title before you buy.

    Sean StephensonPäivä sitten

    The best part is unlike most rubbing compounds it's extremely hard to put on or apply too much and damage the paint it's great on brand new touchy paint jobs and old worn out faded paint jobs, And better than a wax of any kind it keeps a glossy mirror like finish to the outside I even fix some extremely faded clear coat a few different times with it we're straight on wheels too especially if they're coated not to mention headlights it's better than the headlight restoring fluid.
