Making or buying splash / water Cover for COP coil plug area 04-08 f150 4.6 ( misfire

Hi. Have an 08 4.6 that I have battled misfiring on cylinders 7 and 8. Lots of great threads on diagnosing and addressing misfiring. My question is: looking for ideas, feedback, or concerns on potentially making (or buying, but I didn't t find anything) a simple 'cover' that would help deflect water or debris from entering COP / sparkplug well area.

Im thinking of using some scrap epdm rubber roofing material as crude little deflection 'cover'. Anyone here done something like this?

Have you tried using dielectric grease at the top of the boots?

Remove COP'S and spray WD-40 down spark plug well, coat boot and coil and allow an hour to dry. COP'S should be water resistant for a few months at least.
