7. Disconnect every electrical connector and light socket and spray lots of conductive grease to seal out water and salt.
Do you really mean conductive grease, as opposed to dielectric grease? Conductive grease is generally meant for lubricating sliding surfaces that need to conduct electricity. Standard practice, as I understand it, is to weather-seal electrical connectors with dielectric grease (which does not conduct electricity). It is true that conductive grease may decrease the resistance of the the pin connections, but you run the risk of shorting adjacent pins together.
