Hello guys,
I have been following your journey on FB and know you have had some heating issues. Hope all is good there.
My only suggestion for tools is a torque multiplier for the lug nuts. I have one like this, https://www.walmart.com/ip/Tenive-Heavy ... 3=&veh=sem
Anyone can sit on a 5 gallon bucket and take the lug nuts off. Going back A small torque wrench on a small setting would work I still use my looong cheater pipe to set them. I know the bolts can be pulled in two pieces very easy. I changed sides and forgot the right and left thread issue. Oh well it was only about 50 miles round trip to the parts house. but did find out it works great for pulling in studs.
