thanks man I like to post a lot of pictures on here and post little stories. Will be nice to go back on in the future as long as this site stays up. Man that would be bummer to have to drive that far just to get gas. You must live in the sticks! Makes me feel better about my situation.
I made an impulse buy for the Neon. Bought this beautiful powdercoated and CF hydro-dipped cam cover.
Has a gold hue to it
Well I looked it over and as I was looking it over I heard something moving around inside my guess the breather portion, out came a black metal washer the size of a dime.....
Then I noticed this:
passenger top left of the cover
No way it was from shipping, it was shipped very well. Looks like he dropped it at some point. Yes I could just grind it down, but I paid for quality product. And he didn't even clean up the spark plug tube seal spots.
Took a while to get a hold of him but I guess he does a ton of powdercoating. I think he is a younger guy out of high school by the way he acts. But he is going to pay me back via PayPal once he receives it. He already paid me back for shipping. So I will get the rest once he gets it.
As I was boxing it up I noticed this on the inside of the cover. I believe it is a factory RTV around the breather section. Well it just comes right off with your finger nail! I wonder when it is getting powdercoated the extreme heat deteriates the rtv there.
Wonder how many people get chunks of this in their head from there powdercoated cam covers!?
