You're probably correct on the double-ended Screwdriver, Jim.  I think I
forgot about that tool.  And since we're in TX and the car is "sleeping" in
Wisconsin, I can't check.

The small round bar?  For the SP's?  What small round bar?

I always keep the black, 33mm long, round bar just laying in the trunk.  I
think the bar is supposed to be stored in an area where the jack "clips"
onto the body in the (RHS) passenger side, next to the spare tire.

I believe the jack points on my car have been weakened by the "winter salt"
when the car was driven as a daily driver from '69 to ~'86.

Unless Bob Heydt strengthened them in 2012 when he replaced the rockers and
heat tubes.
