Shade tree mechanic advice

Thanks for everyones input.  I got the clutch changed and the coupe is once
again running.  The baseball hat sans brim worked pretty well, although I
still got covered in dirt head to toe.  I used a clean piece of cardboard
which did not stay clean for long.  The hardest parts were pulling the old
pilot bearing out and putting the inside CV joint back together (executive
puzzle).  I don't think I would not try this on a 200 20V.

Ok this may sound like an Odd way to do it, but why not find an old but
clean piece of carpet and lay that on the ground. I have done that in the
past and it works really well and much more comfortable too.
