Mecca Covered Bridge 14-61-13

I just saw the video and noticed all of the attempts at covering what I think is graffiti on the inside of the covered bridge.Is there any kind of material that can be applied to the wood that paint will not adhere to?That'll stop no-good punks from defacing what was built in the past that we should treasure but of course we do have idiots who do not care.
