Engine Case Paint Flaking
All- Riding a 2007 wee with 35k miles. Engine case paint is peeling, right side, water pump cover and lower engine case. Flaking off and exposing oxidized Al below. Not really looking forward to stripping and repainting all this kit. Thoughts are to brush off the flaking paint with a wire brush all the way back to solid paint and hit it with clear coat to prevent further intrusion of O2/H2O.
Thoughts? Better approach? Warnings?
