Carol, thanks for the link. The site has some great idea's, though when I looked under "Practical accessories for your vintage trailer" and saw the pink tools, I first thought the lower case had a Hair Dryer. On second look I think it's a knife and a tape measure, but my wife has a small hair dryer in our trailer, so maybe it is a practical assessory!

Danny, didn't you hear Real Men do wear pink! A small hair dryer is indeed a partial accessory along with the tools and tape etc. It not only helps with hair repair but it can be used for other repairs as well - I used mine to heat shrink the electrical connectors on my new tail lights

I had not thought of using a hair dryer to shrink electrical connectors, that would work well. I've always used the old school match or lighter, but I'll try the hair dryer in the future, if the wife OKs it. I do have a habit of getting gunk on my tools when doing projects.

Actually a heat gun on low works the best but the hair dry will do it if you dont happen to have a heat gun in the trailer when you need it..... no match for me it might burn my nail polish off
