So we don't need a PCV in the valve cover like on the drivers side? Just a tube?

Yep. That's all there is on mine. I was going to add an oil catch can but there's no point. Took the intake off and there was no oil running through it at all. I'm excited for my dyno pull later next month... at 5000 ft of altitude Im hoping to make 300rw. Car has had some head work by a previous owner (have recipts) but no details on what they did. Still. Even pulls against c5 vettes means I'm pulling good numbers somewhere!

That happened to me a few months ago.

Some ¥¿€™tard in a Chevy pickup trying to pass someone. Go figure he's too slow, and then I'm in a ditch. Jerk didn't stop either.

Got tailgated by a car of youngens/idiots on a busy, local road. Slowed to an almost stop real quick, hit the blinker, then pulled over. What is your game plan? Beat me in your stock Eclipse or buy me a new bump cover? Cause if the latter, Id be happy to oblige one of these days and upgrade to a CS for free. And if the former, youre beyond delusional.

Tried the Mothers clay bar kit on my hood. Was pretty easy to do. Really made my paint smooth, but I was hoping it would help with the spots I have. They show more under florescent light.

You may need to get a stronger shampoo for that. Have you tried to buff them.

Haven't tried buffing yet. I only have a really old single speed buffer. I thinking I should upgrade before trying to buff this car. They almost look like there's tiny chips in the clear coat. Don't know for sure. You can't really see them during the day outside very well.
