Machine won't turn on after soup spilled on it

My MacBook pro was turned on and in use on an airplane, when heavy turbulence hit. A cup of soup landed on the keyboard, and the machine winked off, never again to restart. Opened the backplate, cleaned it out as best I could on the road, and allowed to dry. No luck. How can this machine be resurrected?

I have completely disassembled the machine. Some corrosion on the underside of the mother board was cleaned off with 91% isopropyl alcohol. The keyboard cannot be accessed without damaging very thin cables. Waiting for this machine to dry thoroughly before reassembly. Hope it works ... and that the keyboard, on/off button, and trackpad are still in good order.

The keyboards usually short out first and have to be replaced. Please give us the last four figures of your serial number so we know your exact machine.
