Fabric former

Posted: Sunday, January 8, 2012 11:16 AM Quote
Jason, I put the fabric on the bottom of the wing on my PA 11 project and I forgot all about the fabric former in front of  the strut attach point where the cable pulley goes.  The fabric now goes nicely over  the top of it.  I thought maybe when I cut the fabric away from the attach points after shrinking I could glue it down, but no luck.  Any Ideas?

You can just let it go that way, Many Cubs have been covered where guys forgot about that fabric former behind the front strut.

OR

You can slit the fabric right along the compression tube about 3" out from the spar and hold the fabric back as you brush a bed layer of EkoBond onto the former. Once it dries you can stick the fabric down to the former and make a patch to cover up the slit then run a finishing tape over the area
