Hello all, I am building a 601 xlb and I am second owner.  first owner used a clear sealer? on all the seams where alum touches alum.  no total surface sealer on inside of wing.  I live in NW area and salt water will be near.  what is my best option for sealing my surfaces and so i need to seal every seam as I go or just the whole wing when its ready to be re-skinned?  Any help would be great!

Hi Mark

 look into Corrosionx, I believe that it is used on a completed airframe. They use a system where you spray it into areas like the wing and it coats everything from what i've read.

There are several products like this. They seem to do a very good job. However, they will prevent paint from bonding, so it's important not to apply them until after the aircraft is painted, and you are sure you don't have any more touch up work to do.
I was adviced to wait a year before spraying the interior of my aircrat with Corosion X after having it painted by a professional shop.
