Duct tape and a hammer.
If it moves and it shouldn't use the duct tape, it it doesn't move and it
should use the hammer.

I have a canvas tool bag that includes:
An ACE hardware 1/4" drive socket set
A crescent wrench
A set of combination wrenches (box and open end)
Screwdriver with two sizes of phillips and flat head bits
Two stubby screwdrivers, phillips and flat
Small conentional and needle nose vise grips
Tire pressure gauge
Vacuum pump wrench
Safety wire wrench and safety wire
Multimeter (volt, amps, ohms
Bicycle tire pump

I also carry some spare parts, just in case I get trapped at an out of
the way place:
V-belts for the generators
Spare vacuum pump
some day want to get a spare starter
Several quarts of oil

Back when I regularly rented a Tiger to carry friends cross-country, I
carried:

* wrench, 3/8" box+open end
* wrench, 7/16" box+open end
* wrench, 1/2" box+open end
* wrench, crescent, to 1"
* socket, 7/8" hex-top deep
* safety wire, 4 feet
* vice-grips, small
* multi-bit screwdriver
* electrical tape, 1 roll

The only tools I actually used on such trips were the 3/8" wrench and
the screwdriver.

Very good, Rod.

I have aluminum heat shield tape wrapped around the bottom of my Long
EZ main gear legs to shield the fiberglass legs from brake disk heat.
A number of people have mistaken the aluminum tape for a duct tape
"repair". sigh
