A good automotive finish primer should do the trick. Back in the day, we used zinc chromate, kind of a greenish-yellow stuff, that really prevented corrosion. But I'd look at either an auto parts store or see if a good body shop will sell you a small amount of whatever they use. They might just give you a little bottle of the stuff or tell you where to buy some.
