    2G Please help with clutch pedal

    Hey guys, so I bought the car last year and hadn't realized the clutch master cylinder was leaking until it left me stranded recently (Thankfully near my house).

    2G Patching Rust Holes

    I'm trying to finish my 2g with cost effective methods but won't mind paying a welder to do the job right. My concern is if a satisfactory repair would be to use a bondo patch and lay fiberglass resin over it to fill the hole and then painting (After completely removing all rust). I'm trying to...

    Clutch Pedal Click Noise

    Hi, I tried looking up this issue on the forum but couldn't find a solution that would work. My specific case is that the clutch pedal clicks about 1-2 when I fully disengage it. The sound happens if the car is off and on. I'm new to all this, looked at the clutch pedal mechanism and can't...
