Default Can I Paint This?

Yes or no? If Yes, how do I take it off? It is just plastic I think... Any kinds of paint are good?

Okay so how do I go about painting it? How does the thing come off? It is something very easy or technical? Do i need paint with a high temp tolerance since it is the engine?

You have to use certain hardeners and bonding agents with the paint if you want it to look nice and stay that way. A spraycan wont last to long. And the ones they make for plastic might not hold up to the heat.
