Go guy one of those bendable magnetic pick up tools. Sears has one. The magnet retracts in side so that it doesn't cling to everything on its way down.

Oh no, you droped it into the pit of doom. I can't count the number of times I've dropped stuff down there and have never seen it again.

I've got one of those collapsable radio antennas and it has a magnet at the end of it. bought it at schmucks for a couple dollars, good investment for times like that. It extends out pretty far.

My very next investment will be a front mounted intercooler. Whomever designed this top mounted intercooler obviously did not have to work on cars.
