rusty clutch pressure plate or more?

Ok so I got this 99 parts car that sat on a mountain without moving and being started about once in 6 months... The engine ran and the car moved smoothly and quietly so I took it... I have the engine in my car now temporarily while I rebuild and modify mine... But I noticed when I took off that flimsy plastic "plug" on the trans the pressure plate is rusty as all hell.... I only care to get abt 6 months out of this engine/trans. Is there anything or should I even do anything to clean it at all... Without taking anything apart.. I already have it in my car and am finishing connections tmw I need to get mobile. Engine has 185 on it and the clutch is sharp and smooth and the engine strong and quiet but the pos doesn't look like it was serviced for anything a day in its life.

As long as everything is moving as it should with no odd sounds I shouldn't worry?
