    get the strut tops and fixings isolated.. remove the chassis tags until after the paint is laid on ..
    remove all cables and bungs and grommets.. the bonnet release and retainer spring and fixings, looks like they been over-sprayed already.. get that fixed!
    Dont paint stuff that is not supposed to be painted..
