    Need some suggestions

    Any ideas on how I can fix this the paint that is screwed up on the right side of the pic with out dropping everything out of the car?




    I think some break fluid was dropped on it and didn't get wiped off and well you see what happen.

    I would like to fix this but don't want to remove everything.

    Brake fluid it is lol. I would drape an old sheet over the motor and accessories that i could cover, then maybe smaller towels, rags, paint paper to cover everything else. Then spray with your color. It will be hard just to match the top of the strut tower. But make sure the area is prepped and cleaned up good but you attempt. If your not on a budget any good paint/body shop should be able to take care of it for you at a decent price. I know my body man has charged a few of my customers around $150 for the same thing. Good luck

    Yep. I also agree. Also, if you want, spray the other strut mount as no one would be the wiser.
