You have a hammer for tightening hub cap clip rivets on the wheels but is it the original Peddinghaus 300 gram hammer?

Wayne, sensible comments, all. The rod is inside the plug socket. The fuses, etc., will be stored elsewhere. The hammer is stamped 300 on the top, but I doubt it's a Porsche hammer because I cut down the length of the handle by about an inch.

The jack is stored near the tool wrap but would hardly fit inside.

The fan belt has been ordered.

It will match two identical 1955-1956 356 Continental Carreras.

The coolest piece of gear in that wrap is the towel...gotta have the towel! Especially useful for mopping one's brow when you're changing a tire in the middle of the Mojave. Is that the fan-wrench behind the blue-handled screwdriver? Do you have the extra lug-nut? There's supposed to be one of those in there...

Even more useful for opening twist-off beer-bottle caps. Also, other uses for the towel...

Too funny...but we digress.

I recently thought I'd spotted a rogue Bugblatter in my backyard. I installed motion-detected lighting and some trailcams back there. Come to find out it was just my neighbor's wife walking their dog whilst wearing her fur coat. Subsequently I had to withdraw my letter to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources reporting yet another invasive species...ugh.

If it had been a Bugblatter, do you think your neighbor's wife would have been better off with wearing a towel on her head ? :mrgreen:

Probably be better off is she had a x-ray pumped laser for a defensive weapon.......probably not enough though, but towel usually works. I keep one in the car at all times while driving on the DC Beltway just for such an encounter with either a Bugblatter or a member of Congress. Not sure whiic is worse........

Coincidentally, it's Mr. Poe's birthday this week and I shall be celebrating one of my favorite authors, a master of the American macabre & mystery, an initiator of what might be the detective story and also a bit of science fiction, and an all around inspiration.

Just in time for this week, too..........

Oh, the bells, bells, bells!
What a tale their terror tells
Of Despair!
How they clang, and clash, and roar!
What a horror they outpour
