I must have too much time on my hands this week - have posted a few times

I was wondering if many have looked inside horizontal stabilisers - and vertical fins- for condition / and any sign of corrosion.
Doesn't appear to be easy areas to access ( maybe some of the areas can be seen using a boroscope or mini-cam) other than maybe lifting skins
As it is sometime I am keen to take a look at this year on SA I wondered if any of you have found possible internal corrosion issues in these areas and how best to inspect.
Our inspector says if we can see a reasonable amount and it is in good condition , then the likelihood is that the rest is ok
