Valve cover repair

I have a set of valve covers that are in good condition for the most part, but have some dints in them. Would it be OK to use filler on this even with the higher temp of a running engine?? Any thoughts or ideas about this would be helpful.

No problem what so ever. These small dings could also be metal finished pretty easy so you don't need any filler. If here was ever a time to dabble in metal finishing, you have it. If you take your time and push up the metal to level you can get flawless surface.

If you want to try that, just ask. If you want to fill them, go for it, it will work just fine.

Thanks MARTINSR for the offer of teaching to metal finish, but right now i don't feel like i could make something decent in a limmited amount of time that i have. So I think that filler is the way to go.
