    i carry quite abit of stuff now that i think about it, not just an RAA card haha

    -Jump Starter Pack
    -Jumper Leads
    -Torch
    -Small Socket Set
    -2 Screw drivers (1 phillips 1 flat)
    -Multimetre
    -Various duct tapoe and electrical tape.
    -Zip Ties
    -Dirty Towel and rags
    -Cheapo trolley jack (the pole rides up front 4 hitting people)
    -Wheel Brace
    Last and Most importantly SPARE WATER OR COOLANT

    Thats is all.......i originally put all that shit in my boot so id be prepared for a trackday but ended up leaving it all in there as its come in handy. Realistically id use the RAA card before most things cos fuck getting grease on my work clothes

    thankfully i've used my emergency boot tools to help out other peoples cars so far and never my own (touch wood)

    I had to join RACQ (RA Make me spew). One time i let my friend drive my 86 and he couldn't get the keys out and just flipped the lock and closed the door locking the keys in. I asked him where the keys were and he said in the car. he said "Don't u have another set of keys" it was late at night too.

    Used to have a home made baseball bat but now I've upgraded to a golf club.
    I pull it out when I need to
    I'd rather have an '86 than a girlfriend.

    fuck putting all that shit into an 86.. if i had a boot not just a hatch part then itd be different.
    If going to QR id take just my toolbox with sockets, sscrewdrivers other stuff, coolant and oil. jack and spare wheels with tyres (if you dont take these to a track day then you sholdnt even be going..)
    But daily driving just have a big bottle of water 3L, and my shitty 25year old scizzor jack and my phone. im only driving around the coast/brisbane most of the time.. so i have people to ring if i get stuck...



    Oh and a fire extinguisher..
