All ribs acid etched and dipped in the alodine solution. Dipping works much better than spraying or brushing the alodine solution on. I found 20 seconds of dipping was ideal versus the recommended 1 to 3 minutes of recommended time when you brush the solution on. 5 hrs


Wing ribs ready for acid etching, alodining and epoxy priming to make them moisture proof.
