understandable.... its just an offer for a fellow focus owner....

I have air tools, speciality tools, etc... axle nut sockets up to 2 or 3", cant remember how big I have.... same with wrenches, and such.... I even have 1/2" and 3/4" air hammer's and electric drill's for heavy duty work and stuck bolts.....

Here's my shop: which shows some tools, and I still have another shed that has tools, too..... It's 14 or 16' wide and 18 or 20' deep, I cant remember anymore. lol





Those pics were taken about 2 months ago, since I've done reorganized some and making even more room, I still need to buy 2 more of the work benches, like u see in the 2nd pic, so I'll have more room to put up tools, all my boxes are completely full and I still have about the same amount that I still need to put up, even tho some are double's, I still like to try to keep things together and organized, so I can find things as I need them...... but when I got injured, I let the shop go for about 2 yrs, so I'm finally getting back around to getting things cleaned up and re-organized again, so I can find everything, and see what tools I've broke over the years that I need to replace....

So wrapped tube and put hose clamps on as a temp fix. Working like a charm. Just got home from work. Will replace in the morning/afternoon. When it broke on my Kona the car had about 135,000 miles. The 5ive has about 82,000 miles. Sometimes they go soon, sometimes later. The pipe usually cracks due to age, it being plastic, being under pressure and have a seam running down it. They all crack its just a matter of when. Hopeless is suppose to be coming up with a billet aluminum version. Until then I am going to wrap and clamp(reinforce) the one from the Kona when I swap it over even though its only about 3-4 months old.

Sealing headlights sucks...esp when you don't have clamps that fit
