    Has anyone completely re painted a lx470?

    My car is probably similar - 99 - no rust - paint mostly good but clear coat gone in places - keen to address it. I am assuming that clear coat can be repaired without repainting. If so what is typical cost of fixing the clear coat ? Thx

    steering rack - all fluid lost

    Nah dont think so - I assume you mean the bellows? I think leak is from a bad connection (I assume) - however cant get at it as the protection plate is in place and the bolts have been rounded - since original post I have established that the leak is manageable (can keep it topped up) so car is...

    yep - right idea definitely - but dont think a 2 hour tow is fair - so I'll go with the top up plan and take it from there...... I'll do more looking for the leak tomorrow but difficult to see past the underside plates.... thx for the input
