2016 Holiday Gift Guide

Thought I would write a post about 'what to buy a coupe nut' for the holidays.  There is a lot of cool coupe stuff to be had, for sure, but I wanted to suggest something original.  For 2016, here is my suggestion.

I got this idea from a visit to Randy Forbes' garage.  Randy had tons and tons of small consumable parts in stock.  I do too, but I don't have them as organized as he does.  I bought 2 nice Stanley small parts organizers from Amazon and I filled them with small frequently used parts for coupes.  One box is mostly interior parts, the other is exterior.  I made labels with my label maker for each bin, and I printed the last 7 digits of each part number.  This makes it easy to order replacements when needed.  There is still room to grow, I didn't do any of the electrical connectors and pins, bulbs, etc.

When you browse EPC, the last 7 digits of a part number is usually enough to find the part you are looking for. 

So, if you know a coupenut and you are stumped for a gift idea, consider this one.  The cases and parts in the pics are going to a coupenut I know...
