Will a valve cover from a Del Sol fit a d16y8? I have the chance to buy a chrome vlave cover for $100 bucks. The kid said he got it from OBX for $195. Is this a good deal or is it cheaper to have my valve cover dropped off for chrome?

Here is the link to the picture.

its ridiculously cheaper to sand and polish yourself.
if you want to get it go for it.the cover will fit.
IMO thats money that could be spent somewhere else

Start with sand paper, work to finer sand paper, and then switch to polishing compounds.

The valve cover will fit, but I'm really not sure what's going on with that VC. It looks just like a stock valve cover to me. They normally don't chrome plate aluminum either. They usually polish it. It will oxidize after you polish it, so you will still need to finish it. Zoopseal is one product you can use.
