Most crank ups are galvanized and just let each section rub on the ones
next to it as the galvanizing itself makes a relatively good lubricant.
They are also relatively small
Paint, in general, does not survive well under these conditions.
Unfortunately I'm not left a lot of choice as the sections are far too
big to have them galvanized (up to 4' on a face and 24-26 feet long)
