Hello Charlie - Thanks for the detail. It's more than I was planning to do but I'd like to do it right if it's to be done. I can find the zinc chromate primer but are the other items readily available to non aviation mechs?

Hi Xort, the only source of saltwater would be from a leak otherwise it should remain dry. Isolation is on the list of things to accomplish one way or the other in this job. It's not an aesthetic project but I want it to look good when done (and for some time afterward)

Pappy - While I agree with your logic and experience on bikes it probably wouldn't be worth it for me. The weight savings would go unnoticed in our 36000 lb baby unless it was part of a comprehensive Ti upgrade. As it is I'll be using 4 bolts to secure the generator to the Al frame.
