I did. Its been many years ago. Its pretty simple. Simply follow the instruction of the system (I used Stits) that you choose.. The EAA has a good instruction book that gives the general practices and techniques. You're a doc so stitching up fabric is sort of like stitching up skin. Wink

I've done flight controls for a TBM, two Champs (the whole airplane) and other stuff. You can get all the materials and tools from Aircraft Spruce. You don't have to worry about the old process using cotton, nitrate and buttrate dopes anymore. The buzz they gave wasn't worth the terrible hangover the next morning. Really bad. But still stay well ventilated.

Walt,
Have had a great deal of help from 3 EAA gurus on stick and fabric airplanes. A lot of tricks learned from those 3.
It is a good thing I undertook this project. There were three cracked ribs along with the trailing edge that were almost completely broken through. The two worst were where the trim tab mounted. I now know why I had a ratcheting right snap roll.
To stiffen it some RU Afro engineer put a strip of 1/8 inch x 1 inch flat plate steel 1/2 of the length of the trailing edge. None of that mod was found in the right aileron.
It was a good thing I tore it down. That one was about to test my piloting skills.

Walt,
This is a pics of my rudder getting the MEK wipe down before applying poly spray. My tail feathers are poly sprayed now hanging on a rack in my hanger awaiting the fourth coat of poly spray. Then I will paint them. ( with the help of my EAA gurus). 😜🥴

I had never done this before, and I did mine with the oversight of an EAA guru too. It was so cool to learn how to do this!

I could have done them better, but hey, 100 hours and they still look good. I also had a cracked trailing edge that I fixed. Here is a link to my "New Fabric" album...

Steven,I noted that you repaired the damaged trailing edge of your rudder.  Should you have the need for this type of repair in the future, note that we carry this trailing edge in stock.  Good looking job!!
Best,
Doug

Hey - thanks. IIRC, took me a month or so in the summer, working fairly sporadically while waiting for things to dry/cure, get the correct color shade for final coat, etc.

One thing I wish I had paid more attention to, is getting the tape to settle "down" over or into the rib lacing/sewing "channel". Much of it has a bit of a bubble the channel. It is well secured, but not beautifully level as some other work I have seen. Next time... !!
