Removing brake fluid from paint

My paint is staned from brake fluid spilling on my front quarter panel. I plan on detailing the truck sometime soon. What would you recomend using to get the stain out?

Ah that sucks. It's not going anywhere. Someone put brake fluid all over my friends car when we were in high school. It sucked, to say the least.

I've always been told the anit-corrosive agents eat into the paint, and the hydro oil stains it. Either way, I'm afraid the only fix is to grind it out and paint.
