The time it would take to carefully coat each bolt with Vaseline or some easy to remove coating would likely take longer than just painting them, them backing them out and stripping the paint off (with a wire wheel in a dremel tool, or just solvent and a rag)
I'd likely remove each, one at a time ....then replacing, after polishing the heads to a mirror finish. Just chuck the bolt in a drill and use a pad with a fine metal polish. That against the black cases would look awesome
I agree with KM.....then clearcoat or clear finger nail polish to prevent future rust.
X2 on both of these! It kinda sucks but its the best way if you're going for quality.
