  1. So the p40 isn't gonna be replaced for a while . Eventually maybe. I was thinking about the polishing the cover. It's painted right now so I will clear it first. What type metal is the engine cover? Anyone else ever did it?

The rocker cover on the P40 appears to be stamped sheet steel. You could strip the paint, sand and polish it, but you will need to protect it, otherwise it's just going to go rusty.
If its shiny that you want you might be best off looking at chrome plating.

You can definitely give it a crack to see how it turns out, I think the best bet for protection would be an engine clear coat, it will be heat and chemical resistant, but it may affect the sheen.
