I work for the company that manufactures Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks. 
When we export units, we clearcoat the tranny case and engine against
salt during the ocean journey.

There is also a protective coating called KATS coating (also known as
UL3000) for chrome finishes (e.g. bumpers) which we use for ocean
freight.  This prevents the birth of rust spots on the chrome surface
over the life of the chassis.  KATs coating is a thick coating, and we
use another solvent to remove the coating upon arrival of the
end-destination to restore the bright finish of the chrome.

They work pretty well.
