Valve Cover Gaskets

I'm getting ready to replace the leaking valve cover gaskets on my 1990 SC.

I purchased a set of OEM neopreme (rubber) gaskets from Five Star. Are those the best ones for the job? Anyone try another brand or cork gaskets?

When installing the OEM gaskets, do you use gasket cement? And if so, what kind?

I used Fel-Pro and no cement but do make sure to remove all the tiny metal gromits from the bolt holes on the cover itself or else it will leak. Its an easy job. Have fun.
