4. Before removing stitching of the extended gore, mark the bartack location on the break slot with chalk
where the bartack intersects the main seam. This will establish the break slot.
5. Carefully remove stitching on the damaged extended gore assembly. Take note on how the extended
gore is attached. Clean the area by removing all loose pieces of thread.
There is some overlap of the reinforcement tapes on the forward and aft extended gores.
You may need to remove some of the stitching of the aft extended gore. This stitching
must be replaced when the new forward extended gore is sewn into place.
6. Take a new forward extended gore (Figure 1). Ensure that you have the correct assembly; left
extended gore assembly for the jumpers left side; right extended gore assembly for the jumpers right
