Default My clutch stop DIY

Here is my DIY...

First go to your local hardware store...

Go to the bold section and find the elevator bolts...

Open the drawer...

Find the right size...

Grab the bolt..

Then walk over to the other aisle and find a product called "grippers"

The only things you need...

The mod was so cheap I payed in change...

I assembled this mod as I was walking to my car...
Take the sticker off one of the grippers and place the flat part of the elephant bolt on the sticky side of the gripper, it should look like this...

Unscrew the old clutch stop...
The new clutch stop is much longer which eliminates the dead zone

Now screw in the new clutch stop and drive home, it takes a little getting used to but it feels 100% better.

How far do you screw in the bolt? I guess what I'm trying to ask is how do I determine exactly where the clutch engages and the proper place to stop the clutch?
