hmm... there are a few common leaks, if it's oil I'd check the valve cover gasket. Mine leaks around the spark plugs, but it doesn't seem too major.

Check your clutch pedal as well. if it's wet it's brake fluid and you need to change the clutch master cylendar.

There's a pretty common coolant leak as well:

I fixed this within a month of buying my car. I might even have a few more o-rings lef over.

Yeah that would totally blow having to re-do it again.

I'm building a "paint booth" behind my house right now so I can paint a set of wheels and paint my new bumper.

Wanna know what it's made out of?
An EZ-up canopy wrapped in 3mil plastic sheets, with a heat lamp on a tripod in the corner

*EDIT*
Tripod is too low so I hung the light from the ceiling

OK, I've been able to isolate the leak to the area at the passenger side of the valve cover / where the camshafts come out of the head... I'm hoping a valve cover gasket takes care of it!
