- hey airmechanic what's the biggest repair job you've ever done?
Fabric skin repair. Sounds easy right? I fucking wish. It was me and a partner's project. (We're still in school, it was my first hands-on project with airplanes ever. My partner was a prior Air Force mechanic. I have never interacted with an aircraft outside of taxiing and plane rides.)
Determine just how the fuck you are going to fix this damage. To do so you must consult the AC43.13 B, one of our many source material books. Ours was a V-shaped cut which require a Baseball stitch, with 2 stitches per inch, and a half hitch every five stitches. Three tries later and we got it right.
Remove the top layers of Poly-Brush (the pretty paint) until you reach the anti-UV, aluminum based paint. This removal must extend at least 1.5 inches past any damage. Then cut out a fabric patch to cover the area. Use Poly-Tack to secure the fabric patch.
The patch must be ironed at 425 degrees F (if I remember right). This will shrink the fabric patch slightly to provide internal stress to secure the patch to the aircraft skin.
Mother Fucking SANDING. Since the repair will need to be repainted, and if you just paint that one area, it will look like ass, the whole damn section needs to be sanded down until the instructor fucking says so. This ended up being about 6-7 hour worth of sanding a 3x2 foot vertical stabilizer, front and back. Wet sanding with something like 600 grit mind you.
Painting. Heres where my $1800's of tools I had to buy finally comes in handy. JK, I just needed my respirator. The painting was actually pretty fun, but one group started painting their piece the original color when we were suppose to change it to blue. So they had to sit out for a day, until it completely dried.
That was the end of that, but then we learned to make FAA approved lettering on said new parts. But that's a pain in the ass story for when I have more characters to use.
Feel free to ask about anything else, it's kinda fun.
In the end it took us about 16-18 hours of work, just to do a repair to a 4" x 5" cut in fabric.
