Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 2007 Nissan 350Z with a 6 speed standard trans. It's hard to shift into 1st and 2nd when it's cold. After it's warm the problem goes away. Any suggestions on the problem.
The oil in the box is thinning as the box gets warm, Check grade of oil in gearbox, change oil for a lighter viscosity. It's somewhere to start.

The clutch bearing is supposed to have a groove on the inside where it slides on the shaft That groove is supposed to have a heavy grease applied to it to prevent the bearing running dry on the collar it slides on.Regardless of your driving style, that grease is intended to remain there for the life of the clutch, (generally every clutch I have ever replaced still had some remaining lube there unless the bearing itself failed from a material defect which caused it to overheat and cause that grease to then run out of the retaining groove) I'm not there and can't see the old parts, but in my opinion the first clutch may have failed partially because of your lack of skill in using a stick shift vehicle but the second failure obviously is not your fault if the information you have posted is correct.

The support bar right above your head has 2 elastic bands attached to it, one on the drivers side and one on the passenger side. After time they lose their elasticity and don't pull this bar (the one with the top attached to it) down when you retract. If it doesn't pull down, it will stay up (forward) as the frame retracts and get jammed up in the rest of the frame. Worst case it will pop the metal clip which holds the center of the cloth top to it (it is the length of the bar and spot welded to it) off. It will also put holes in your top on both sides as they don't fold down under and instead get crimped in the frame. Temp solution is to push that bar down as it retracts. Permanent solution is to repair the elastic sooner than later before it wrecks havoc with the whole frame and motor.
