Ive painted one side and POR the other, will then make up a gasket to seal it.

On my engine I just painted both sides of the cover and use a smear of grease to form a seal. It doesn't leak & neither has it gone rusty. When laying up the engine for the winter I drain it right down, sponge out the dregs and check the Isoflex to ensure there's no rust anywhere. I also check the filters on the pick up pipes to make sure they are clean. I replaced the brass bolts for stainless steel ones as brass doesn't age very well when in contact with water & I didn't want any heads shearing off.
