This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report:
Please check into the lack of correct fillet sealing on parts at PSD, mainly in the strut area. All parts that are less than .XX" thick require the fillet to extend over the edge of the part for integrity of the fillet seal, to ensure a sufficient width of fillet seal exists to bond to the part to protect the faying surfaces from infiltration of corrosive elements and leaking fuel--called an "A" dimension (reference (engineering specification) page 31 Figure 10). You’ll find this omitted "A" dimension, and the corresponding hazard of ineffective electrical bonds and fuel leakage, pretty much everywhere in the strut shop, but especially on the (model number) struts. Just look at all of the electrical receptacle fillet seals and fillet seals around wire bundle pass through covers and maybe the raceway access covers we install. Also, take a peek at the midspar TAI (Thermal Anti Ice) boot fillet seal. It may be thicker than .15", but there is a thin metal plate that stacks on top of it to fasten it to the spar. I talked to my seal instructor on interpretation of the .XX" dimension in the spec, and she said that such a stackup would still require an "A" dimension because the top part was thinner than .XX". I never tried to write this up, as that would have resulted in my earlier banishment to "writing QOIs that are never used hell" or new job as a sign holder-upper. Also, while you are at it, please write us up for not having the minimum .XX" cap seal thickness on pretty much all of the fasteners we fillet seal. You can probably guess why I never touched that one either.
