Just be slow and steady till you get a hang of the timing.... You'll probably stall coming to a stop forgetting to push in the clutch!

Clutch in
Revs up
Let clutch out slow till you feel it start to grab..
A bit more power as you SLOWLY let the clutch the rest of the way out.

Practice makes perfect!!

April 22nd, 2011:

-Finished all the vacuum lining
-Finished Gas lining
-Filled radiator with fluid
-Filled engine block with oil (After screwing in the oil filter of course)
-Filled transmission with 3 quarts of ATF fluid. (the hose technique was awesome)
-Wired the starter relay plug to the clutch switch
-Installed the battery and hooked it up.

-CRANKED THE CAR! twice.. before the battery died =(

Here's the video as promised: and will have the video of the car actually firing up for the first time when the battery is done charging in an hour or so. (hopefully)

Got the exhaust hung, but the manufacturer left out two bolts, so I wasn't able to get it all tightened up to hear her purr =(

Going to bed and am going to buy the bolts and hopefully be done with her tomorrow? May or may not, I have work and need to go out to get my license re-pictured.

mkzg: I didn't mess with the reverse lights yet. I'll do that later after I take her for a spin.. Or 10

Oh, and the **** clutch slave bleeder screw broke on me. It was a shitty NAPA part that I'm going to return and get my money back when I have the new Conceptz one coming in the mail in a few days.

Got her all done.

Interior is in and everything.

But I need to bleed my clutch slave I think, Its not coming back from the floor very fast and I have to wait like 20 seconds after pushing in the clutch before I can shift again.

Looks like I will have to wait another week for that clutch slave =(
