Buckaroo Posted December 22, 2016 Report Share Posted December 22, 2016 Any information on taping areas of the wings and other parts of the aircraft to increase smooth air flow is appreciated. I did a forum search and read where Bowlus tape is the way to go. My hanger owner dude who is a know it all A&P tells me my landing gear must of gotten racked at one time because he sees the tape falling off in areas around the gear and fuselage. The right gear did get damaged from a rough landing a few years ago. It was repaired by a FD knowledgeable repair station. Now he tells me that the right wing (damaged right gear side) is 3 inches lower than the left wing in his level hanger. Question? The tape bonds are rough and "gapping" around the gear and fuselage attachment points. Any points on inspecting this area for proper repair and fitment of the tape in large gap areas? The area does look questionable to the eye! I hope it's just poor or old tape fitment and needs redoing! Thanks again! Still waiting on the Montana weather!
