His Prius hybrid car battery went out, after 5 years. Here he is putting a brand new one in!
Because it's a keyless car he had to manually open the car trunk to take out the old battery and work on the new one. It's not an easy job, but ken makes it look easy. He must use his tai chi discipline to take his time and move one step at a time to accomplish this out of the ordinary task!
The slideshow below shows you the process of installing the 12 volt battery as well as putting things back in place. There are pictures of ken's first metric socket tool kit he bought in Australia in 1995 when we visited our daughter who took a year off after getting her Bachelor's degree and entering law school. Ken's love of tools, self reliance and detail is indeed a great combination that help him with his extensive projects.
