Black hole of tools and bolts
Why is it that whenever I drop something while working on the Ferrari, IT NEVER MAKES IT TO THE FLOOR!!!???!!! It invariably gets hung up or caught on some bracket, laying on top of the frame, a cross brace or some shield.
I have been doing pretty good about locating the odd nut or bolt that I drop, but yesterday I dropped a 1/4 inch ignition wrench and it is gone!
I spent over a half hour looking for this wrench. I got greasier looking for the wrench than I did working on the car. I used a drop light, a mirror, looked at every possible angle, I even ran a magnet over the places I couldn't see. It is GONE!
