Default Alodine

If I build another, I'll look for a company that will alodine. I'll take all the blue vinyl off and have the whole thing alodined. Zero weight gain. Probably cost way too much though.

R&B Aircraft Painting in Topeka KS advertises that part of their process is an acid etch and allover alodine treatment before primer.

No idea what it costs since that's still several years down the road for me, but there's a picture of an RV on the "process" page of their website where they mention it.
