Fluid. Dont worry just tape everything up and paint away. The rotor will be ok if you get a little over spray on it. The first time you hit the brakes its gone.
Be sure to be safe jackstands are a must. I would cover the hood and fender tops up with a old blanket if you are one to get spray can crazy.
Use aluminun foil to wrap around the brake lines and cover the springs and stuff. That or get a thicker paint and brush it on. If your not into masking that may be your best bet.
you can do it. I did these in about 2 hours.
