    I use silicon spray or a light lithium grease for coating. Also look at many of the bicycle chain lubes as many are aimed at wet conditions.

    ^ This. Get yourself a can of Moo-Slick silicone: http://www.cowrc.com/cow_rc_new_site_027.htm

    It's used by many hobbyists to protect hardware, bearings, and other metal parts. It's also really good for protecting plastic parts. Also, pick up some basic 3 in 1 oil and maybe some bicycle chain specific lube like Tri-Flow or Break-Free. These oils are great for bearings and hardware.

    WD-40 on the other hand will leave a residue and it will attract dirt and grime. I wouldn't recommend using it.

    I never said wd 40 was a lube, wd 40 is a water displacement product and will help keep things from rusting though. Bike lube might work, never tried it. But keep in mind when you go buy some bike lube that there is two types, a dry and wet lube so make sure to read the label before buying a lube. the wet lube might work well.

    I have been using a dry lube I got from home depot. It protects against rust also. It has been working pretty good for me.

    bicycle chain spray is great because it is specifically formulated to not collect debris, the bottle sizes are also favorably priced to hobby stuff.

    speaking of snow... has anyone epoxied two oem slash wheels together in the rear and put skis on the front? That sounds like fun.
