How to preserve uninstalled Master Cylinder

I am going to install a m.c. rebuild kit[from napa] in an original 1970 5470409 m.c..I will also get the m.c. lid plated.The bore is smooth with no pitting.Instead of honing the bore[more expense]I will lightly sand it.At least that is my plan?This will not be going back onto the car.How do I preserve the bore,resevoirs,and exterior of the m.c. while stored?Thanks

Scott sanding is no good it has to be honed with very fine stones. Sanding will not be even for the circumference nor will the pressure exerted be the same as a hone all the way around. Don't rebuild it till your ready to use it . Cosmaline will preserve it so will spray grease and then a zip lock bag. Alex
