Marc, I have an extra one but it has some minor pressure cracks (damge from shipping) over the timing belt cover part. It's totally usable as is, or would be perfect if you need something for mock up or if you're going to remove the tb cover anyway for cam gear access.

Happy to sell at a good price, just shoot me an offer.

Marc, it's not going to show up in pics. Just some light cracks that I didn't even notice for a couple of weeks.

if Marc doesn't want this cover, I'll work something out with you.
I just got an extra one like last week.

i'm waiting to find out when i am getting mine back from a friend. lent it out so he could powdercoat his. i'll be selling it once it comes back as i have no need for 99 valve cover.

mkulak has first dibs as he PM'd me months ago. at least i think it was him.

I dunno, should be fine, but I haven't looked at the thing in quite a while. I'd probably smear something on the inside just to make sure they don't spread.

Half normal price + actual freight.

Depending on what you plan on doing to it they will both outlast your life and your cars most likely...Make the choice any easier?
