Bonus Round: paint the new straps before assembly.

Because an extra coat of protection is always worthwhile.

Kind of like the suspension arms, or the black steel wheels - they come covered in a very good black coating, but one that will eventually begin to allow corrosion at all of the sharp edges, and around any welds, which a coat of black paint over will definitely help prevent/delay.

Since it is now installed, and not really worth taking back off just to paint, you can just liberally coat it with fluid film protectant, in place, and touch up occasionally over the years and doing that it will last far longer than the original one did.
