Acid damage- battery explosion

I have a battery that exploded in the car.. Acid is everywhere... I attempted to rinse it off with baking soda solution. I see damage to the radiator, paint is peeleng off .What I can do to stop corrosion? How I can make sure it's not making anymore damage to add to existing? I replaced battery.
Also, any suggestions about driveway? I've got a big rusty stain. Appreciate your help. Thanks.

lots of baking soda

The only thing is use lots of baking soda if you can see it fizz you still have acid.sprinkle it all over the engine try not to get it into things like the alternator Rinse with lots of water repeat if required.Start engine to dry.
As far as the paint to radiatior repaint.I would use a good black spray paint.
It should not corrode but if you think it might have just rub it down with scotch brite pad and water let dry and then paint.
