Stripping Valve Cover
I used Strypeez, the regular old furniture stripper and it worked great. I put a thick coat on then covered it all in aluminum foil for about an hour and wiped it off with a rag. I found that the original paint is really thick, probably to cover up imperfections in the aluminum casting. I used gloss black rustoleum spray paint in a can and it came out nice - and still looks good after three years.
