Not sure of the official term for this part but as you can see in the picture below there was some sort of finish on these and I do not think it was just paint. These are the 3 clips that hold the GT tail light on with the long 7 inch screws. I was thinking of dipping these in Plasti Dip. What are you thoughts.

Are you planning on driving during winter months? If so, then any protection is good. I have used the dip on tools but I have always wondered what would happen on car parts! The only down side would be if the protective coating got torn, which would allow water and salt (if driven in the winter months) to corrode the metal. Something on the metal has to help. Hope it works out.

Likely won't help. Screw will "saw thru" the dip. Then dip can help water to rust more, likely faster.

Use whatever to convert rust to anti-rust coating. Clean off big flakes only, not all of it.

They have paints that kill rust and stop it from coming back. That would probably be better than plasti-dip. The one that comes to mind is POR-15, but it is expensive and some of the ones you buy at the hardware store work just as well for a lot less.
