I took mine off and had the under side of the hood custom painted.

The fire blanket is designed to smother an engine fire for a couple of minutes so the passengers can exit the car. It reduces noise slightly but its removal is not going to affect performance of the car.

They are a very soft material and designed to be sacrificial. You can remove it. You can paint it. You can try to clean it using a soft brush and soapy water.

When I got my car it had some white staining. I believe it was from car washes or possibly road salt. Either way I used a vinegar and water solution with a very soft brush followed by an extractor. Took two applications and probably got 95% out.

I cleaned mine with simple green and a soft brush. After it dried I hand painted the embossed letters with silver testers model paint then sprayed multiple coats of clear lacquer. Did this all after removing the panel and re installed with new gm push clips with the large round head made just for that panel.
