    Default Par-el-ketone or linseed or lps-3 ?

    once I get my tail feathers ready to prime---- thought I'd like to coat the insides of the main big tubes (through the end hole-) with something to
    fight moisture. Perelketone ? Linseed ? LPS-3 ?

    Thoughts ?

    I think linseed would do a nice job

    Airframes uses Corresion X inside their sealed struts.

    thought of corrosion x--- but its so runny it might run out hole. thinking Parelketone might stay put on the inner walls better ? maybe heat up the tube with heat gun
    when I put it in--- flood it inside and let the excess run out the hole. ?????

    I put paint in it. Asking for trouble when you start covering.

    I was thinking that too-- have to do it after final paint ---
    How would a wash with ospho --- dry with dry air and then paint inside ? (maybe a thinned enamel so it would run out the little hole without too much drama )

    I blast the part, epoxy prime and turn the gun down and spray in the hole. I have poured what was left in the cup inside, sloshed around and then poured out the excess.
