A little off topic but...

With the inserts in place and in good shape, is there any metal on metal contact in regards to the hinge points that are bolted on to the truck bed on each side?

Ultimately, if one were to paint/coat them would it last (within reason)? Truck is in the paint shop currently and don't have another attached tailgate to visually check with.
