Storing Brake Parts?

I just salvaged the spindles and front and rear disk brake parts off of a B-Body Chevrolet (Impala, caprice etc.) including the master cylinder and all four wheel cylinders to upgrade my brakes. If this was any other mechanical part I'd put a coat of light oil on them as a preservative. However, we all know that petroleum and brake fluid do not mix. I know I should probably go ahead and clean them with fresh brake fluid, but doesn't brake fluid actually draw moisture out of the air? What can I do to keep them from corroding on the inside while I prepare to install them on my Malibu?

Drian all the old fluid and spray it out with Brake parts cleaner and cover em up to keep the dust off. I keep my stuff under an old bath towel I use in teh garage. I get em cheap cheap from garage sales.
