Don't you know you should never mix stainless with carbon bolts? Yes but if this did work wouldn't it last just as long and be stronger?
Actually galvanic corrosion cannot occur if the bolt is not wet. There has to be an electrolyte for the corrosion to take place.

"Galvanic corrosion is an electrochemical process in which one metal corrodes preferentially to another when both metals are in electrical contact and immersed in an electrolyte."

In any case, ghetto rigging is ghetto rigging no matter how you split it. Dont use some crap protectent, just buy the right material!
