Valve cover

Quick question, I have a plastic valve cover that has a small amount of melted ness where a bolt holds it down. It's not melted through it is however not flat. Was wondering if I used rtv and a thick bead if that would do the trick or do I need to pick up a new to me valve cover?

I would get a new one .Most of the after market ones are around the 120 range. I have never heard of the plastic ones ever not leak one way or another.
How did you melt part of the valve cover?

I put a aftermarket plastic valve cover my 258 with a gasket and permatex #1, no problems so far. It was about 80.00 and works well. Don't use your old one if it has any damage.
