The image below shows a B model leg from his aircraft. The other leg broke in half at the end of the landing roll, at the point marked with the red arrow. TM817-39 makes plain what needs to be inspected and what needs to be done.

As a stopgap measure before the OEM parts arrived from Germany I used a piece cut from an Ikea flexible cutting board @ 1mm thickness. We made it longer than specs and drilled two holes so that it’s retained by the mounting bolts, as well as glued.
G109A divebrake caps
Fixing G109A divebrake caps after corrosion lifts gelcoat from alloy.
Remove caps from alloy.
Beadblast with Indu (sp?) bead, an epoxy bead. (Macca wrote “3ddflux”)
Avail from Burwool or Abrasive Blasting
When beadblasting is almost completed use a lupe (a 10x magnifier) to check that there are no black bits left.
Then paint with Allodyne (sp), a compound designed to seal aluminium alloy. Then paint with 2pack and then gelcoat over the top.
All the above needs checking and editing.
