Couple of hand-dremeled drain holes on the old 1391401 and that problem is no longer a problem.
I've doused two work laptops in Diet Coke. In both cases I went for immediate power-switch shutdown, pulled out everything that could be pulled out, and immediately drained as best I could. After a night with a fan blowing on the open bits both of them immediately rebooted without issues, though full keyboard functionality took a couple of days of manual de-sticking. And yes, I know I got lucky.
