Brake fluid under pedal box clean up?

I've pulled and replaced the MC, the culprit of all this. I have pulled the pedal box and cleaned the remaining fluid with dawn soap. I am wondering if I should treat or prep that area before I install the new pedal box to prevent any future corrosion issues.

IGNOR the RED circle, that was for another thread question.


Thanks

If the paint is ok you are good, if the paint is compromised I would wire brush, prep and paint

You should really consider rebuilding your pedal box or sending it to Bruce Stone to have him rebuild it for you. Dawn soap will not clean up the brake fluid. Try mineral spirits.

Not one of my favorite activities - cleaning up the floor board area and pedal box after a master cylinder puke event. I just did this on my racecar. Hours head first in the pedal area with hand tools, power tools, paint, etc. LOL.
