Remove the pushpins from the edges of the replacement section and machine sew the section
material to the canopy inside by stitching, according to the illustration below. Use the stitching
procedures in WP 0014 00 with size E nylon thread, 7 to 11 stitches per inch.
Turn the canopy right side out and trim the raw edges of the section material to a point ½-inch
from the stitching made in step i. above.
k. On the canopy outside, stitch completely around the prepared area using the stitching criteria in
step i. above.
Reposition any item(s) removed or laid aside in the original location(s) and reattach each item to
the canopy by restitching according to original construction details and WP 0014 00. Use size E
nylon thread and 7 to 11 stitches per inch.
m. Stencil information data or other markings on the replacement section using the procedures in
WP 0016 00.
2. Modified Gore Section Replacement. If a gore section that is located next to the lower lateral band
does not have damage extending into a corner that is bounded by the lower lateral band and a radial
seam, the section may be replaced using a modified method as follows:
a. When removing the damaged section, cut the section material diagonally across the corner.
Allow the corner material of the original section to remain intact and allow a sufficient amount of
material to remain to prevent the replacement section overlapping the pocket band.
