I want to glass in some stiffener plates and captive nut plates to my tub.  They’re in mild steel and I want to protect them from corrosion; is there a paint/coating I can use which isn’t affected by resin?

Or will it be better to just shell out for plating, or go to stainless?
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is...

No idea but an alternative would be aluminium and it is easier to work and lighter than stainless.

When I used to weld up car sills etc, I used to rub a layer of glass compound over the welds to 'stop' them going rusty  :D :D
