Is it a GT or a Cobra? GT valve covers are not too hard to remove, and if i am not mistaken...they are plastic. Cobra valve covers are aluminum I think. Someone painted theirs blue when doing an engine rebuild. They looked really good, but they were in a white car. I couldn't do the same to my car and make it look good under the hood

The gaskets are rubber. Then ones that are OEM are black but Fel-pro makes blue ones. They are nice. Just loosen the bolts all the way around the valve covers but don't pull them out. The gasket keeps them in place. When you replaceit put thegasket in the valve cover first then push the bolts though to keep the gasket in place. Then set the valve covers on the heads and torque to spec. (not too tight)Use a small dab of RTV where the heads meet the timing chain cover.
Those of you that have painted and installed... Have you had any problems with the paint chipping post installation? Any Scratches or chips when sliding the drivers side in past the brake booster? I have mine pulled apart right now for timing chains and just want to dress it up a little under the hood.
