I’ll do just that I’m new to the whole process so we’ll see where I goTo me the strategy you should have for this is obvious. Ensure you don't have any fluid leaks by replacing hoses, gaskets, ties, and clips where needed. Steam clean the engine bay and get rid of the grease and grime. Start from one section and work your way across. You can paint the valve cover yourself using heat resistant spray paints.
