I would think that might be better to try a pin or sewing needle to see if that would would clear the device mask.

Been around cars my whole life... uncle owns a salvage yard that I worked in it during the summers. Mechanic in the military for a few years. Work on all my own cars. Degree in electronics which is huge knowledge in auto repairs. Worked in the security alarm business for about 7 years... then finally went into sales. Best move ever.

For my day job I did Manufacturing and Materials Engineering just before the turn of the century. It's largely mechanical engineering with some extra materials and manufacturing stuff, and without the fluid and thermodynamics parts of mech eng. Those missing bits would be useful when it comes to ecomodding though!

I like doing stuff with my hands - had a plant nursery for a while, and did a short stint in a cabinet making shop. My Forester has (designed and made by me) a custom engine bay guard, fuel tank guard, strut top spacers for lift - the type of things that make it better off road, but worsen the fuel economy. Back in Engineering now, but it is pretty practical - working with people, production systems and products in a manufacturing environment.

Also love kayaking! - Although having a roof rack and boat nerfs the MPGs big time, maybe it turns into 'smiles per gallon' at that point? lol..

Uhh...self-taught basic electrics and electronics as a kid...self-taught automotive mechanics in my late teens, turned in to my hobby as an adult. Always had an affinity for quiet, efficient mechanical means of doing anything useful. A particular affinity for cordless/battery powered things and efficiency (I hate being wasteful). This forum is the place to put them all together.

Nothing to do with my education or choice of work. I prefer not to have the enjoyment of my hobbies ruined by having to do them at work all day.
