Tools You Need - Introduction

In this section we have listed the requirements to have a minimum in-expensive setup for your home ‘garage’. First thing is a location or a flat (preferably shady ) level area  to park your car. For those with garages and decent drive- ways this not a problem. For those  living in apartments, most of the time it is ok to do minor DIY repair and maintenance in the parking lot itself.

Sometimes apartment complexes have an area for washing /vacuuming cars, where you can do maintenance inspection and minor repairs as well. If necessary do take permission from concerned apartment facility before you venture out. You may not need all the tools , but only need a subset of the tools mentioned here for a specific maintanence job, so look up ahead and read the "How to do article" for a description of the needed tools.
