Do you want the VCT rocker cover or the standard rocker cover painted red? The VCT rocker cover might not fit as it has provisions for the VCT in the front. I'll have to have a look at the fairlane to confirm. You better off just getting the normal AU rocker cover, deburring the sharp edges and casting marks, then polishing it to perfection.

i got one off my ef that has slight paint peel, and i was tempted to polish it, but ended up buying a new red el one off e-bay.
it does wonders for the engine bay.

true, getting the original one doesn't actually add hundreds of dollars to the value of the car. cheaper to DIY. red is a boring alright! :)
