It's just been already painted. You can use a paint remove on the valve covers but I'm not sure if you can in the plastic timing cover ( you could sand it down and paint it with crinkle pain like i did on my covers). If topic, could you tell me what car your radiator is out of? I know it's not stock because it has straps holding it down. If you have the brand and product number, could you share that? I'm looking for an alternate radiator that fits & the one you have on looks like a perfect fit. Thank you for your time.My apologies for the newbie question....
I am looking at a 1985 Supra MKII P-type. However, this engine does not look exactly like the other 5GME engines I have seen in such. It supposed to be the factory original engine. For example, I have not seen any that have the painted red areas before?
