    What should I use to paint my plastic intake pipe, its red now and I want it to be black? Or what could I use to take the red paint off of the plastic, im almost positive that the original color of the plastic was black and then painted red?

    krylon makes a plastic paint that should work pretty well. I'd sand down the red paint and put a few coats of krylon fusion on.

    I wouldn't take off the red just to paint it black. Use a good degreaser, make sure it's smooth, and paint it with your paint of choice.
