Potential galvanic corrosion

So I just removed the old steel floor due to rust issues. I bought sheets of aluminum 050 thickness and glued, caulked, and riveted it down with aluminum rivets to the frame of the bus.

Now I just read about galvanic corrosion between aluminum and steel. Did I just make a huge problem for myself?

Salt and stray electrical currents can eat it up. Good grounding, and keeping road salt off as much as possible will be important. Otherwise should not be a problem
