Brief Description:  Fuselage Fabric

Plans:
1. Cover the fuselage.
Status: Started. Generally covering the fuselage will occur in several steps.
1. Apply anti-chafe tape over protruding rivets and any sharp corners
2. Apply contact cement to the tubing
3. Cut the fabric to size
4. Position the fabric in place and stick with heat welds
5. Apply contact cement over the fabric and force into the weave with paper towel
6. Pre-shrink the fabric
7. Repeat the process for each surface
8. Final shrink the fabric
9. Apply surface tapes over the seams and spars

I started today by taping the bottom of the fuselage and cutting a length of fabric to size.
