    Yesterday while checking my brake fluid, some of it dripped on my fender, I thought no big deal, I used a soft dry cloth and carefully wiped it clean.

    Today I learned that its corrosive to paint, so I quickly take another cloth, use soap and water to rub off whatever excess there was from yesterday. tomorrow I am going to the car wash.

    Do you think my paint is now damaged?

    ^^Agreed. I think since you caught it so quick you will be fine. If it sar for a few hours or more, then you should worry

    thanks for the input guys, I had a 2nd glance at the fender once it was dry and it looks good, still going to the car wash as my truck has mud on it :p

    You should be good since you wiped it off quickly.
    A good wash, maybe even buff it out just for the old belt & suspenders approach wouldn't hurt :thumbsup:
