(2) Normal gore section replacement. Gore sections are normally replaced as follows:
(a) Remove the damaged section by cutting the section material at a point 1/2 inch in from the
inside edge of each adjacent seam or lateral band.
(b) Cut the remaining fabric diagonally at each corner to allow the raw edges to be folded back.
(c) Fold each raw edge back by 1/2 inch and pin and baste each folded edge to complete area
preparation. Basting will be performed according to procedures in paragraph 2-19a.

(d) Position a piece of serviceable parachute cloth, equal to the material used in original gore section
construction, over the prepared area.
(e) Cut the cloth piece to a size that will cover the entire prepared area. Allow as many selveged edges
of the cloth piece to remain as possible. Also allow at least 3 inches of extra fabric to remain on
each raw edge.
(f) Fold under each selveged edge of the cloth piece to a width equal to the width of adjacent seams and
aline the cloth folded edges with the outside edges of adjacent seams or bands. Secure the seams
or bands with pushpins.
