Take the rocker cover off, then give it a really good clean, degrease it or something. If you really want you can sand the old paint off and just leave nice sparkling metal. Get some good heat resistant paint, can get from auto store, and go for your life.

That's one way.

just make sure when you put the rocker cover back on you dont tighten the bolts to much or you can crack the rocker cover.

A better and longer lasting approach (It will cost more initially) is to have it powdercoated...have seen it done but don't know what it would cost

i was quoted $70 to powder coat an ef tappet cover, but you dont need to use any fancy paints. i have done a few tappet covers with the cheap export paint from supercheap and its is fine as long as you sand and clean the cover corectly. if you want a pic look at my avatar
