I just want to update this in case anyone else has the same issue.

Replacing the battery fixed the restart problem completely. It passed the hardware tests and I put it through its paces to make sure nothing was amiss.

I stripped the computer down to components and examined everything under magnification. I found a couple of spots that might have had some dried water spots and cleaned them up with 99% Isopropyl alcohol and a toothbrush. I’m pretty sure though that the only corrosion was on the power board attached to the battery.  That board took the brunt of the spill, but the new battery came with a new one.

I let it dry under a fan in a warm spot of the house for a couple of days. Put it back together and powered it up, and I’ve never been so happy to hear the startup chime! Fixed!
