That is what I said, as the oem specified.

My question, is to whom ever reads this, is your wings rib stitched?
Just a overall question to what ever system is used. I know it is required.

I am amazed that the time frame 1967 to 1994 no one notice that these wings where not stitched.
Also, the service manual does not specify how often you should tie off. Unless I missed it.

The following is from the Q&A section of the Oracover 6000 site.

Is rib stitching required?
That just depends on the requirements as set forth by the designer of your aircraft. If the plans call for rib stitching, then you must rib stitch. If the plans call for rivets, you will use rivets.

When my wings were recovered, the rings were glued in, but the holes were not cut out until the next inspection.

My plane was last covered in 1967, last flown in 1994.
The plane has been inside a heated building under goind restoration untill I recieved it last November. The inside of the wings are covered with yellow cromate, no corrosion, look like new.

So, I am in process of compling with all the SB's.

There is no rib stitching been done, on the trailling edge of the of the old covering job. In this case, I have no example to follow .

I will be covering with Oratex 6000, Oratex says to do as OEM requires.
The service manual is rather vage on some discriptions.

So, with skin off, full view visual inspection, does this mean that I would not have to have all the inspection holes untill 100 hr inspection?

I am going to put them in anyway, the wings are off, just trying to clarify the wording of the SB.
