    So this weekend i want to start cleaning under the hood, but when i open it there is a big ugly piece of red, (powdercoated valve cover) the valve cover looks tacky and want to paint it to match my paint (rootbeer brown w/ gold flake) but is there anyway to remove the powdercoat or would i be better off buying a new valve cover?

    it would be cheaper to just get another valve cover, but aircraft stripper will work most of the time if not you will have to get it soda blasted
