Ok so clutch tube welded in both places. I did the little bracket to the floor thingy like they did. not alot of welding room.

Changed throw out bearing, the freakin brazillian one kept getting caught on the lip of the pressure plate!!!!!!! :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

Fiberglassing the right front headlight bucket hinge back on......So if the directions say 1/4 tube for 1/4 can they LIE! Had a cup of plastic in 3 min. Did it again with less, same BS.
Then mixed it with alittle less, shit wouldnt harden!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heat gunn'd it then mixed it hot to just smear everywhere, hope it holds im out of hardener!
