bulkhead/windshield "hinge" corrosion

Regarding the "hinge" that connects the windshield frame to the bulkhead. I assume it is made of solid cast steel, like the bulkhead. If so, why is it corroding in this manner (see pic, i.e. white, off-colored like cast aluminum, all the paint has flaked off). Just curious, probably going to sand and repaint.

^ what he said.
When you have aluminum agains steel the dissimilar metals electrolyze and corrode.
