I hope you did some work where the battery acid spilt!

That stuff will eat away your whole car right in front of your very eyes!

Make a baking soda / water paste mix and scrub that spill, will neutralize the acid and stop more corrosion

I actually havent sorted the spill out yet :redface:

I had a look at it when we opened the bonnet on Mon and it doesnt look good at all! :thumbdown:

Thanks Rhett, I will make that mix and clean it up on the weekend.
