Rusty propane tank base solution?

I know this has been on the forum before, but I used some automotive door edge trim and it worked perfectly. I cut into a few sections to allow for drainage. After sanding the tank base and painting it - I rather not do that again...

Well that'll be another project after I pick up our 21NE next month (we hope) it sits parked until the Chinese virus thing dies out or a vaccine is developed.

You may want to also add that automotive door protector to the bottom of the propane tank cover to keep it from wearing the paint off....
