Seriously super shitty. I'd throw in $20+ into the "get Brandon some new tools" fund. Dude uses them more to help others than himself.

I sent him a message to see if he wants me to just ship him out a bunch of my tools...we'll see

It might be better if we can each pitch in money and get him sponsored by harbor freight :D

Considering he's worked on your truck you should be double matching me!

It is a series 3. No Whitworth, AFAIK. Almost all regular imperial fasteners.

I believe he is going to end up at rwollschlager's one day to swap the gearbox. Maybe that is a good place to get a care package sent?

I've got some older stuff I loan/build going away to college/first home kits I'd be happy to send some pieces of if there's an address. It's no where near what some other folks on here have, but it was given to me and I'd be happy to pay it forward.

On an unrelated note, I bet the kit from Z.G. contains a coveted mug. I hear you can essentially trade that for a transmission nowadays.

At least it's just the bumper and not the body panels. Easy to bend back that bumper or otherwise repair.

Can never be too cautious while driving.

I'll be setting up a crowd funding account for him tonight or tomorrow, simply because he's too goddamn nice to make his own. He has since gotten new tools, but is surely set back a good amount of cash from all the misfortunes
