If the guy would have put some seal on and around the screws it probably wouldn't have rusted...

That sucks. Luckily on mine I squirted half a tube of silocone at every screw hole and in between layers. When the bracket was bolted down, I squirted some more over the screw heads. Even dropped the headliner when it was pouring down rain and no moisture.
