Thanks for all the advice everyone – great suggestions!

I have ordered some of the cold galvanized spray paint as well as one of the POR products suggested above. I’m going to test in a few areas before I decide what to do on the majority of the ceiling. I see a harbor freight grinder for $25 – that store is almost absurdly inexpensive. I will most definitely use a respirator and try to get airflow moving from the garage down through an open basement door + fans.

If this works short term, maybe I’ll consider having the spray foam option / painting. A dehumidifier would be a welcome addition to the shop – it will also help with comfort (current shop RH is about 70%)

Thanks again to all, I’ll post again in a few weeks once I try some of the suggestions out and see how they’re going.
