    Some oils, like some ATF and air tool oil, are specifically formulated with anti-corrosion additives. You can also get special vapor paper and plastic bags that will not allow water vapor to pass.

        Whatever you do, make sure there are no fingerprints on the metal. Warm it up to the point where there's no moisture on it. Then slather on whatever it is you choose for a rust preventative. Good luck.

              That's what we used when I used to work for a custom boat trailer builder. When we close for a long weekend or holiday we'd spray it all over the trailer that were built but not painted yet.
