Homemade Tools

Howzit everyone. Has anyone made any tools? If you made any tools post some pics. Here is a picture of a tool I made to help me remove the fan clutch.

I'll post a pic of the tool we made for popping the door handle surrounds in place. Not pretty but works so well I should patent it.

wouldn't be hard to do, i don't like the e36 fogs or the square look of the front end hence this look. i am going to mold a couple just to play around then i'm going to try carbon fibre. if you have a couple of strong carrier pigeons i'll make you one, i'm sure you're nowhere near me! here's what it will look likeHomemade Tools-e36-seidl-m3.jpg

damn that's gonna be rough...the fenders are completely different.

the bumper of the E90 almost is the fender...damn.

well i guess if you mod the fenders...shouldn't be that horrible if you already know enough to mold your own bumper it shouldn't be too bad to mold your own fenders...
