Fabric Covering Wing 3 of 8

fabric top wing A

The fabric attachment process for the top of the wing is the same as the bottom side with exception that you overlap the bottom edge fabric by 2 inches on the leading edge and one inch on the trailing edge.  The photos above show the fabric after the 3rd of three heat shrinking temperature settings. The fuel tank cover was reattached to make sure the holes of the cover still aligned with the anchor nut attachments on the wing.  They did and there was no deformation due the fabric shrinking process.

Before moving on to the next step the fabric was scrubbed down with full strength MEK to remove any drips of glue while carefully keeping the MEK off any glued edges.
