When would we ever need an allen key for quick roadside repairs ...
at least with the pen knife we could open a bottle of beer .

How about adjusting the CAS? Not sure you could make any adjustments that would help...

Maybe the jack could be used to open the beer??

Joking aside, I forsee the sole use of it to remove the cover to access the spark plugs - after all, they give you a spark plug spanner, so that would be useless if you couldn't get to them.....

Yep, they are - I certainly recognise the packing tube (I saw enough of them!)

They are OK. You can order them directly from Wayne. I believe his sister ships them from the UK, so you don't have a huge waiting time.

He offers polished and brushed.

Used it twice - When a hood frame bolt landed in my lap and when I noticed a headlamp beam was bouncing around when I hit a bump because the pod was loose ....

fits these socket head bolts...

Good to know you did some roadside repairs with the tool kit ...

Not so good for anyone who buys that one at £150 and the allen key is missing !

Just found out my headlight pod has slipped a bit, just wish I had an allen key to tighten it up !!

But you can't actually lean into/against an Elan can you ? The only way I could do it is to kneel down first then lean into the engine bay !!

I suppose people with very well equipped garages with hydraulic ramps could do it !
