honestly it comes form my exp with felporo on hondas. every valve cover gasket was too long by about half an inch leaving all this excess somewhere that would always blow out of the channel with you tried to get it onto the car. reallllllllly fucking annoying and always required more silicone than i appreciated.

You're not alone. I recall my old Accord had that problem too. Never had a problem with them on any other manufacturer"s vehicles.

Same issue when I bought mine. Used a fel pro and liberal anounts of rtv, still going strong. It's pretty straightforward, just be careful of stripping the holes on the aluminum head

Hope to do the gasket over the holiday and once I get the head off want to clean it up best I can. Any suggestions on cleaning it ? Wire wheel ? Aluminum Polish?
Also wondering about the cap. Seals pretty well but I’m thinking to replace the gasket. Anybody know if those are still available?
You can see from the picture around where the cap seals is a lot of grit almost like sand.

For the cap you should be able to buy an o ring at the parts store that will fit. It won't match the original but it'll work once the cap is tightened.
