I notice that the hinge pin of a MS20257-P5 is cadmium plated. However I cannot find info on the aluminum hinge pieces, does anyone know if those are anodized? The hinge available from Wag Aero is anodized and appears similar to what is in the kit, so my guess is it is anodized and requires no further protection. Just curious what people are doing regarding priming or corrosion protection for the hinges.

This is the spec, but it can be either anodized or not depending on the dash number which is not specified: https://www.guden.com/pages/PDF/ms/20257.pdf
