Hows the manual training coming along?
Thanks! I might do that, I can just imagine the looks I would get if someone found me putting my headlights in the skated hall oven, haha. I just wish I need someone up there that had a garage and tools they would let me use. I am going to have top find out if any of the professors I know are gear heads, but I seriously doubt it.
She is doing pretty good. I find it really interesting trying to teach her how top drive it. It took me 5 min to learn, but I had the knowledge if exactly what was going on between the engine, clutch, and transmission. I think in those terms it is a lot easier to learn how to drive a manual. Now I am trying to teach it to someone who had no idea how the internals of a car work. It had been a great learning/bonding experience for the both of us.
