Personally, id just use sealant.

Those rot catchers need all the help they can get.
Waxoil about an inch thick before you fit them, they are horrible, horrible things for creating rust.

They're also great for covering up the most rot-prone spot on the R8 so you don't realise it's a problem until it's got REALLY expensive to fix.
