comment Dent removal from passenger door
It also depends on your goals. Are you looking for perfection? Or just less evidence of your elk attack?

comment Why has my car burnt through all the oil?
@DanielHumberstone, if this turns out to be a blown head gasket, it's one of those situations where the part isn't all that expensive but the labor could be. It should be significantly cheaper than a "new engine"!

comment Why has my car burnt through all the oil?
Might want to suggest a second opinion: a mechanic that recommends a new engine for what sounds a lot like a blown head gasket is troubling.

comment How do I inspect a used tire?
A little more data might bound the question. For example, are you assuming that minimum tread depth is present? Is the tire I mounted or on a wheel? Or is the field wide open?

comment Replacing Headlight Assembly On Vehicle
A picture of the situation would help. There might be something nearby that can be loosened to allow your hands or tools to fit.

comment Is it safe to drive in race conditions with missing lug nuts?
That is one of the coolest tools that I've ever seen. That said, this is an opinion question as written. If you changed into something like "what are the likely failure modes of a four nut wheel running with only three?" Or something similar, it would approach answerability.
