ok, so some gigantic truck merged into my drivers door. there isn't much damage, but the most obviouse are two rather large tire marks. they won't just rub off, but my gramps, who helps me a lot with my car, just walked up with some brake fluid and a cloth, and rubbed it on. i freaked, ran to get a towel, and washed it off the find that the tire mark was gone. will the break fluid hurt my clearcoat, or is it ok as long as i get it off quickly? it just goes against my better judgement to put brake fluid on my paint.

make sure you wash it clean with automotive soap and rewax it and you'll be fine.

just don't let it sit too long on there and there won't be damage to it.

Use the brake fluid but then spray it with a can of brakleen to neutralize it and wipe that off. Still I think using a good rubbing compound would be a better way of going about it. Or get some 2000 grit sandpaper and wet-sand then polish it.
