Brake fuild spill

So I changed my brake pads yesterday and when I was done I noticed brake fluid dripping under the truck. So I opened the hood and saw that fluid was coming out of the cap so I wiped it up. The fuild rose when I pushed the pistons back on the calipers. Well the fluid dripped onto some electrical wires and onto parts of the frame. So what I'm asking is it bad that I got fluid on my wiring?

As long as you wiped it up right away, there shouldn't be any issues. Don't be suprised if the paint on the frame starts to wrinkle (especially if you let it sit for a bit) however.
Don't forget to top off your master cylinder if you haven't yet.

It don't like he has to worry about that if he is getting fluid coming out of the mastercylinder when he pushed the caliper pistons back in.

But it is a good idea to check the fluid level again when your done.
