I got melted car cover off my sidepipe by using a can of quick freeze (electrical circuit tester) and a wooden tongue depressor. Freezing the plastic makes it shrink and become brittle and it chips off pretty easy. I used the tongue depressor so as not to scratch the coating.
Wait till headers hot and use a paint stirrer to remove the bulk then quick wipes of a rag to remove the rest. Once cool laquer thinner followed by semi chrome polish. Did this when my timing light pick up melted to the header...again.
