There's nothing to see below that-just put the crank gear dot in position at 12 O clock as you see it-You'll be okay-

I wish u were serious about that, I finish my course in january, and jobs here for women are hard to come by. Most men have to much pride for a woman to work at their cars but I wanted the course because I love the design and details of a car

You know how to shoot at a car with a paint let me know and I'll see what I can do I sure need lessons on it myself, getting old and rusty with a spray can just call the shot when you're done. Don't be surprise if am your 1st customer to ask question.

Good Luck
