Flap Fittings Primed

I decided to remove all the fittings from the flaps to check for corrosion between them and the spars. The parts were all plated, poorly, or zinc chromated. There was rust on the back of all of them, stop strikers and actuator fittings. I have them all cleaned up, treated for corrosion and epoxy primed. I also did the engine mount. The aluminum spar was covered in rust from the fittings but had no corrosion. I glass bead blasted the areas to clean them, conversion coated them and epoxy primed. Once the primer is well cured I'll rivet them all back on and finish the paperwork.
