stitching, when possible. Lock all straight stitching by backstitching at least 1/2 inch. Restitch by

following the original stitch pattern as closely as possible. Stitch according to para. 2-18 and

(2) Make a 1/2-inch foldunder on each end of tape length.
(3) Center and fold tape lengthwise over edge of the damaged area. Secure splice by stitching
a boxstitch formation, 1/16 inch in from each edge, along full length of splice material,
using a medium-duty sewing machine and size FF nylon thread. Stitching will be 7 to 11
stitches per inch.
