Stitching. Stitch and restitch with size FF thread which matches the color of the original
stitching, when possible. Lock all straight stitching by backstitching at least 1/2 inch. Restitch by
overstitching each end of the stitch formation by 112 inch. Restitch directly over the original stitching,
following the original stitch pattern as closely as possible. Stitch according to para. 2-18 and
Splicing. A stowage flap edge reinforcement may be spliced an unlimited number of times as
follows (figure 2-67):
(1) Cut a length of 1-inch wide, type IV nylon webbing long enough to extend 2 3/4 inches
beyond each side of damaged area and sear ends according to para. 2-19.
(2) Center webbing length lengthwise over damaged area including edge binding, and secure
the splice by stitching a box-stitch formation, 1/8 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.
