Cheap repairs we made when we were young and broke.
I remember helping a friend with his '62 VW beetle. A rear axle seal had blown causing quite a mess. We had no 36 MM socket so we literally beat the nut off by placing a punch on the corner of the nut and backing it off using a hammer.
Of course, the rear lining was soaked with grease.
Since money was scarce we soaked the shoes in kerosene and lit them on fire to burn out the grease...Oh, the smoke! It actually worked pretty well.
If it weren't for the wrecking yards we would all have been walking!
