Necessities for LeMons Racing

Things I think you should have in abundance to attempt racing in the 24 Hours of LeMons:

  • Duck tape
  • Zip-ties (including some of the fancy metal kind if possible)
  • Welder in your speed-dial list
  • Lots of gearhead friends
  • Grease, oil, WD-40, and other sundry garage liquids
  • Heavy-duty hand soap
  • Decent tool assortment
  • Sense of humor
  • Sawz-all
  • Dremel rotary tool
  • More zip ties
  • Understanding spouse/significant other
Seriously, you will learn to love the zip tie if you don't already. There's no budget for replacing normal fasteners on the car, and anyway you'll be removing lots of the things normal fasteners would attach to so you might as well just zip the stuff down.

(Then duck tape it for good measure.)
