definitely looks nice.... I guess my only choice is to get a second cover, since I wouldn't have any time between school and possibly work for it to dry and be put back in... out of curiosity though, WHY do you need to get a new gasket, and really....what happened?

the factory one is made to be replaced as soon as its been removed.

i dint know that until later and the stock would not go back on right and i shot oil all over the inside of the enginebay.

i do have an extra still you want it i'll even paint it if you pay for everything.

ah nice.... I'm broke, getting paid, then going to be broke, then will have money lol (in other words, after I get paid, I'm buying the FS air intake...) then after that I should have money again. ANYWAY, how much would you charge for the valve cover and shipping, as I'd like to try the painting process myself
oh another thing though... I'm not quite sure what to look for when getting a replacement gasket... any help on that? appreciate the offer, btw

all the prep and applacation is the same. the 05 just dosent have the raise letters (or does it) there should be a how to on removing the valve cover if you dont know how.
