    Did some serious cleaning today – it is amazing how much dust and gravel the 360 and especially the CS collects - I thought I start a thread about special tools everybody has - here are mine (all from various others sources):

    - Wheel Hangers
    A must for the SC with its Carbon Brakes – I don’t want to hit the disks while pulling the wheel – e.g. P GT2 comes standard with these tools and a warning to use them – I got mine from Hill Engineering (sponsor) http://www.customferrariparts.com/homemainferrari.htm - a must for SC owners in my view

    - Hockey Puck
    I use a puck on my jack – although I use a special low frame jack with rubber pick-up - I like the puck because it provides better ability to find a center position within the lifting point avoiding any chance of damaging the underbody

    - Wooden Blocks
    To gain access to the underbody for cleaning I use four wooden blocks (11x3.5x17) – jacking the car up on each side and sliding two blocks under the wheels can be done in a few seconds

    The hockey puck is a clever idea. To jack my 308, I bought a small 1-ton jack at WalMart for $20. I took the wheels off it and it works great to get under the car to raise it.
