Changing the clutch master/slave assembly

So I need to replace my clutch master cylinder slave cylinder assembly. Figured I would do a write up as I go. Wanted to ask if there was anything special to do while doing this?

So I have the nv3550 5sp in a 2001 sahara 4.0. I was driving down the road and all of a sudden the clutch pedal had NO RESISTANCE. It stayed up but not clutching ability at all. So I pulled over to the side of the road. Started looking things over and saw no fluid in the reservor. Got underneath the jeep and seen clutch fluid everywhere. The line had come loose from the slave cylinder. It is secured with a rolled pin that just pops in but had vibrated out allow the line to just come lose. Well I thought no big deal put it back with a new pin bleed the line and ggod to go. WRONG. The whole assembly is a PREBLED Sealed unit from the factory. So now I ordered a new clutch Master/slave assembly and will be replacing it. I will take pictures and note all tools used. Any thing I should be careful of doing this?

Clean off any brake fluid that may get spilled on painted surfaces.
