Time for Fabric

Image

 With the Fuse painted, it was now ready to fabric cover. However before I tackled the largest fabric covered component I decided to first test my skills on some smaller parts. The Turtle Deck was my first experiment in learning the fabric cover process.  I researched various covering methods and products and decided on The Poly Fiber System.  I liked the Instruction Manual and I also attended a two day class which helped me gain some confidence. But the most important aspect was the product itself.  The Poly Fiber System is durable, easy to install and easy to repair.

In the photo above the fabric has been glued to one side of the Turtle Deck and is in the process of being heat shrunk.  The next ironing at the highest temp setting will smooth the wrinkles away.
