Did you put some RTV sealant on the 4 corners? BTW, they are valve cover gaskets. :s3:

Also, did you torque them down right?

when i got my telstar tx5 racv inspected the other day, he noticed that my rocker cover gaskets were weeping, the same as yours i guess. he said it's not a problem, that they had probably been doing that since the engine was made. he said a fix would be just to replace the covers(they're just rubber aren't they), and they leaked because the oil and age had worn away the rubbers elasticity, but that it does't really matter.

hope it helps, i'm not going to worry about it while it's only a weep that you can hardly notice.

cheers
