my clutch is slipping pretty bad.

I bought a fidanza flywheel and I'm about to buy the ACT clutch kit (HY1-HDSS #2088 "performance street disc") - problem is I lack the tools, talent, location (I have a garage but no lift or decent jack) and knowledge to do the work all by myself.

anyone out there want to trade beer/pizza/good times, or just plain cash, for helping me take care of this?

I have a friend who normally helps me but he's extremely busy with school.

I am basically broke otherwise I'd just have a mechanic or the dealer do it.

and by the way, I'm not totally useless - I've replaced belts, starters, spark plugs, wires, rotors, calipers, etc... even did my own CAI, just never a clutch before. so it's about 40% guidance 60% "this is how you do it"

anyone?

Please, by all means, don't believe me in that post I just wrote, because everything I say is myth and a product of my imagination, and WILL result in the destruction of your own vehicle (according to some).

Damn, I have done it, just I borrowed the tools to do it.

Yeah, a lot of jacks are needed. As well as an impact gun and sockets. The more the better.

It's a 6 hour drive, otherwise I'd drive down for a weekend to help.

the friend who helps me says he'll help me

problem is the credit card I was going to use is maxed out (hint: a majority of the purchases were not things for me... and it wasn't fraud or anything)

so it looks like it's going to have to wait until I can get the clutch now. thanks though!
