    fuel smell gone, new smell now?

    Ok i have an 02 wrx stock... anyways i had the problem with the fuel smell in the cabin on cold starts awhile back so i took it in to get it fixed, all said and done...

    got it back and immediately i notice the car is slower and no smell... couple days later i start noticing whenever i got my fans or a/c going i smell fuel again and this isn't during a cold start, this is during normal driving... it seemed to happen at random... then suddenly i start smelling oil!, not burning oil but as if the oil is just sitting there.... that went awhile and now i smell paint! (wtf?) like fresh paint, but i haven't been around any paint...

    also i noticed that after they changed the fuel railings that they put alot of stuff back but in weird positions, also i noticed there was alot of dried green crap which i think is anti-freeze...

    should i take it back and have them look at it or is all this normal?
