I don't think it'll be too bad but I'll have to scrape it out of some bolt and screw holes and whatnot when I do service going forward. I could have stopped when I realized it was rubber-like of course but eh...

Unless someone thinks having a rubberized undercoating on most of the exposed metal, including most of the suspension parts, will damage anything?

Edit to add: I just noticed Valvoline CVTF is $42 for a 6 quart pack on amazon. I think that's a really good deal compared to what usually $9-10 a quart? I might pick up a pack or two.
That is unfortunate, I would try to get most of it off. Itís known to hold moisture on the metal and cause everything to rust faster.
