Building a Hobbyist Go-Kit that fits in a 350Z

Mar 30, 2020 | Others

As I have always been known for, if something needs to be fixed I will almost always get asked to do it. Everytime I went home or to my friends houses I was inevitably asked to fix something. So i decided to use up the spare carry case I had and build my “ultimate” go kit with all the basics I would need to fix most things.

The list of things that it needed to have was long and I didn’t have much space so I had to get creative with tools and try find some miniature versions of tools I might need:

  • Tape measure 
  • Phillips #2
  • Flathead
  • Stanley knife
  • Led Torch
  • Scissors 
  • Side cutters
  • Pliers
  • Metric allen keys
  • Micro precision screw driver set
  • Metric 3/8 socket set
  • Duct tape
  • Electrical tape
  • Multi meter
  • Dremel gas torch
  • Straight knife
  • Pen and pencil
  • Permanent marker
  • Plastic pry tool
  • Wheel security key
  • Spare car bulbs
  • Cable ties
  • Mini wd40

I did a rough layout of all the tools I needed before I found some way of holding them in place.

Foam cutting

The next part was extremely tedious. I found some 5-7cm medium density foam and got a long thin craft knife blade and cut out the shape of each tool. This part was hard to get right and some of the tools are a bit loose, i think I would have liked to have found some denser foam to to hold the tools better but it serves its purpose for now.

Car fitment

It actually took me a long time to realise this case would just fit in the behind the drivers seat glovebox of a 350z. It is almost perfectly made for it and now whenever I go to friends or family houses I will always have the bare essentials I need to fix any issue.
