Uhh. Somebody put some bondo on and did a really shitty job? Kind of hard to say for sure from just the pictures but that's what it looks like.

Thanks, but why would bondo be used on the strut tower? Rust?

You should know better. Look at both sides closely next time. The should be practically the same and the wiring should either be soldered or some good straight one piece connectors. Or OEM connector . . .
