I'd go with carpet again if I were you. Paint could be done, but I don't think it would look nearly as nice. If you're willing to take the time to remove the stuff to fix the rust correctly, you...

I've heard the oil pressure sensor is a common spot for leaks. I'm about to replace mine when the new one arrives.

I don't think you'd need them either, but if you really want something like this, that vent one that was posted seems best to me.

Well, that stinks. It's lame how parts like that could even be sold. The age of merchants being proud of their work and good name has sadly past. Now any organisation will sell any piece of garbage...

Yes, haha. The corner tab where the bracket mounts is totally rusted off. :D I have the old bracket and bushing; they are actually fine. They were just not attached to the subframe.
