Maybe some lock tight? Good list you got.
Make sure you have an extension for your sockets for the hard to reach places.

While strolling thru my local Searís store yesterday, I stumbled across this set for only $199. Seems like a pretty good deal if you ask me.

Craftsman 260 pc. Mechanics Tool Set with 3-Drawer Flip-Top Blow Mold Chest

you can't have enough deep sockets, either.
plus, a breaker bar--took the handles and blades off some old metal hedge shears and converted them to breaker bars--one for my tool bag and one for the tool chest.

the shears have telescoping tubes--so, these are 'adjustable' breaker bars.

Thumbs up

looking pretty good richard... thanks everybody for your input/help. most guys on here i'm sure got some experience already in knowing what to do, but a few of us new guys truly are clueless (unlike Clueless) when it comes to these things. i felt this combined with RSS's FAQ page really lets new guys hit the ground running starting off in their garages and bike experience.

dont forget the disclaimer at the btm of the page... lol
