Options depend upon what they are made of....I would suggest something that will tolerate the heat that builds up after engine shutdown. I'd think a very thin sheet of aluminum epoxied to the underside would be a good start.

I think you should try oil paint to seal it, I too had similar problem, but oil paints does good job for sealing. You can also use some Droppers & Caps (http://www.logpac.com/en/products-pharmaceutical.asp?subCatId=7) for the same.
