Corrosion protection is a topic of much debate...and causes confusion among new builders. To cut the chase here is what i decided upon:
Note that you can go to www.matronics.com and search the RV-List archives for all the gory details on priming. There are products such as Dupont Veriprime that some people are using.....but the manufacturer requires that this have a top coat...so more weight, work,etc....
If you think about what you are trying to accomplish with corrosion protection it is that you don't want water coming between two parts causing a galvanic corrosion...or water sitting on a metal surface for a long period of time.
With this in mind pay attention to the areas that this would happen. Also watch out for any aluminum/steel contact areas. I used zinc chromate covered by a layer of enamel paint in these area to prevent galvanic corrosion.
My plane should be corrosion free for at least 30years or so.
