Spreader repair

The stainless fastners and cap shrouds have pitted my aluminum spreaders quite a bit. After sanding them down to good metal, will the corrosion stop when I isolate the cap wire and the fasterners from the spreaders? Aesthetics not a real concern and I'm assuming that the electrolysis will cease when I separate the stainless from the aluminum.
