    Hey guys,

    Well I replaced my uncles brake caliper and I guess when I put in in the bed to go to the store some fluid got on the bedside. i did get a wash last night luckily, but today I noticed this....paint wrinkled about 1/4" circle and left a smudge around :eek:...

    Anything I can do? Thanks...

    Its hard to tell from the pic, but brake fluid will cut right thru the clear coat. You might want to stop by a body shop and see if they think it could be wet sanded out and buffed. I'm talking like 1000 grit then 1500 then buff and wax.

    I see...Will it get worse if I don't get at it for a while?

    Not if you washed it good. Its kinda like bad bird shit. It eats while its there, then when its washed its gone and left its mark.
    I saw a guy pour a whole bottle on some guys car once, the guy took it to a car wash 3 days later and it blew the paint right off. (They were fighting over some bitch)
