    Thanks Mike.

    I don't need the fog covers, I'm pretty sure I got the last brand new sets from JNZ a few years back, mine are perfect. But They won't be perfect forever!

    well they don't look like the ones in the pic all brand new and stuff. But they are both in one piece. They are gray looking and you can see the fading. I've never painted them but that's what I would do. But if you want 100% oem color then I understand.

    As far as oil leaks go I generally don't have a problem with them either and haven't rocked balance shafts in 10years. Surface prep is key and not over torque fasteners. I generally clean everything really well with a razor blade and then block it with 400 grit sandpaper on a flat block. Just enough for it to flatten out. Then rtv the corners. Also almost every seal is OEM I've used aftermarket gaskets in the past and they degrade. The OEM gasket is almost rock hard and a real bi*** to remove especially on the front cover.
