Surface tape locations

Posted: Sunday, September 21, 2014 7:22 PM Quote
I am just about ready for ecofill but would like some more information/guidelines about surface tape locations.  I have the ribs taped, the wing tips, the leading edges and trailing edges but in the videos there are other areas taped...one parallel to the front spar, the false ribs etc.  Any information or suggestions would be appreciated, I don't have any other planes to look at :). Thanks in advance.

I would surface tape anything that touches the fabric from underneath.  False ribs are good candidates.  The idea is to give it a little extra layer of thickness at the edges of what ever your protecting.

Here is what I did.  I might have over taped but I would rather have too much versus having to repair later on.
