Get an Aaron Bend-a-Light Pro.  It's a tiny grain of wheat bulb on the end of a 
foot-long probe.  About 30$.  _IDEAL_ for poking around inside engine bays and 
even inside pots.  You'll be absolutely amazed at how much detail you can see 
when you're not blinded by the stray light from a flashlight.
