It's Saturday morning, the parts you ordered by mail have come in, and you're ready to start installing them--or are you? You have the new parts and the Corvette, but do you have the tools you need for the job?

Chris Petris from the Corvette Clinic has an impressive collection of tools, including some very common pieces he's modified for greater utility. He went through his toolboxes for us to help us get ours ready for all those simple, at-home Corvette repair jobs. Some of the tools he showed us were for jobs way beyond our ability; others were must-haves for simple Corvette repairs. And some of them were just plain too cool not to have.

Check out the sidebars below to see why you need some of these tools in your toolbox.
