I will begin and as we get a list going I will update the first post, if we get enough intrest we could make this a sticky.

Not custom etc but will help someone out

Engine Crane w load leveller - lifts stuff up to 1500kg (including car body's onto trailers to go to scrap.

2500kg Wayco low lift jack - gets under all my lowness, gets higher than your shitty super heap stuff.

Pair of car yard ramps - get your ride a metre off the deck for gearbox swaps and fuelline making, cleaning etc

Water blaster - $15 for as long as you need over a weekend.

Fork type ball joint splitter - bit rangi but good for taking old shiz off.

All stuff on a you break it, you fix / buy it - hope this helps others out.

Not that they are specialist tools, but tools all the same that I did not always have, and were always borrowing from my mechanic neighbour etc, until recent years, I have started to buy a few things I have needed!

If you are in Timaru and have limited access to tools, and need any of the following, for free short term loans,
and I am not using them at the time, then yell out:

- Hydraulic bottle jack small shop press (just a wee supercheap one for pressing out bearings, wheel studs etc)
- Repco Battery Charger (8 amp I think)
- Engine stand, which has had a few A series motors on it, and also some EJ20T's :?
- Couple of pairs of axle stands
- Torque wrench
- Good solid "low-ish" trolley jack (decent one)

Probably other stuff I have forgotten too....

broke
510 dollies - these bolt on where your front crossmember and rear moustache bar would go. They have braked casters fitted, so you can roll your 510 body around while you prep/paint it. Made them to move my car around, hopefully I won't need them ever again

You can buy them from me for $100 which is less than the cost of the materials in them, or borrow them for a box of beers
