Are/have you flushed/drained and refilled that fluid yet? Brake fluid is hygroscopic and easily absorbs water; having a compromised cap may have allowed the fluid a chance to wick moisture out of the air... the last thing you'll want after spending all you have, is to find out the brake lines are corroded!

Maybe I'm just being paranoid, I didn't see the cap's condition, but it would be a lot cheaper to set that up than pay for revamping the brake system.
