floor. :p

Even worse hiding spot for me is when something rolls off the IC and it ends up on the radiator support. You'd think I'd learn but I don't. It's such a nice surface put stuff. The only way to get it out is to pull the radiator or drive the car. :(

howabout the intake manifold under the blower, and the fenders? manifold has claimed one 10mm combo wrench, and fenders ate both my 8mm wrenches. :mad:

Haha. I have had some bad ones. I think the worst have been bolts that fall down, and I hear them hit the subframe with a hollow "clonk", but can never find them. Sometimes, weeks later, I hear a "click" while working on the car. Lo and behold, the missing bolt turns up on the pavement.

I had a good one recently. While trying to take the stud that holds the fuel rail out of the driver's side head, I was holding the small coolant crossover out of the way with a 12" screwdriver. Well, I dropped it behind the engine. "Clunk" "dunk" ... silence. It had somehow fallen just right and slid back and lodged on top of the transmission. I couldn't see it from any angle! Eventually, after removing both heads, I was able to spot and retrieve it from the engine bay. Silly.
