My cam cover is showing signs of bubbling andd flaking paint on the underside of the cover. I am concerned that bits of flaking paint will end up in the engine if I don't clear and repaint the cover.

Can anyone suggest the best way to deal with this, can I just buy heat and oil resistant paint and apply it to the affected area or will the paint need to be stripped completely before treating the cover ?

I have just done mine. Best thing is to strip the cover of all it's bits and bobs and send it for bead blasting. Once done get it powder coated as this will be able to withstand the heat. it comes out really well and this will save you a lot of headaches trying to remove the paint and repaint. I did mine matt black to match the plastic trim in the engine bay. Good luck. Steve
