Lightbulb Porsche 944 S Valve Cover Gasket

Hi guys,

I have purchased a valve cover gasket for my faulty one. Also got the plug seals. Now before I go stripping my poor baby down could somebody post me a picture of a valve cover gasket. While I ordered the correct on, I am not sure the guy at the other end understood the difference between 8 valve and 16 valve and I don't want to discover his mistake when my car is apart! I want to be 100% confident going into the job and I ain't at the moment.

Real easy, the 8V is paper, long and narrow, the 16V is a neoprene mixand is a "seal" type perimeter type. And also look at the valve cover, it's obvious if it's the right one or not.
