You can paint all of it, except the muffler. (you could paint it too, but it will burn off and stink). Use high-temp engine paint available at any auto parts store.

Hello: Ryan

Painting can be best accomplished by applying grease over the parts that are not to be painted. Doing so saves time over masking the parts.

When the paint is applied, it will cover the grease also. Once the paint is fully dried, simply wipe off the greased areas.

This grease over parts method should be used on all manufacturers make and model plates and serial numbers. It can also be used on shafts, pulleys, wiring and most electrical parts and connections, etc.

I rode down to the auto parts store but to by the paint you have to be 18 to buy the paint! Do I have to take the first layer of paint off first or can I simply paintt over the original layer?
