I've got my instrument panel out for ADSB update. Found some corrosion on dash and other basic fuselage parts . Question is: ACF-50 or Corrosionx?

Corrosion X is thicker viscosity that stays in place longer. ACF - 50 is much thinner viscosity and creeps more into lap seems but does not last as long, if you use it as recommended you may find it coming out of seems / joints for a while.

I like stuff getting into my cracks and crevices ! ??? I would prefer corrosion treatment to get between the sheets as much as possible . ::) It's the stuff you can't see that leads to bigger problems .
