Full set of 3/8 and 1/2" drive inch sockets, combination wrenches, blade and Phillips screw drivers, slip joint pliers, pair of vise grips, adjustable wrench, and a set of feeler gauges will cover most of it. You will find some larger fasteners so a 3/4" drive socket set and some 1" plus combo wrenches are a plus. If you already have a decent automotive mechanics collection you should be good to go with the exception of the larger sizes which are not needed for everyday service.
