    Best way to semi-permanent fill braze on threads?

    So I've got canti posts on a bike that I'm not using. What's the best filler to keep the water/dirt/oil out of the threads so that if I ever want to use them again, they won't be rusted junk?

    Special made, or just like the silicone caulk I used to seal the kitchen sink (clear)?

    Grease up some brake bolts and screw them in.

    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    A little grease followed by heat-shrink tubing in your choice of color.

    Now that sounds spot on with what I had in mind. Perfect!
