GENERAL REPAIR INSTRUCTIONS
All procedures are in disassembly/assembly sequence. Only disassemble an item as far as necessary to
repair it, then locate the appropriate point in the assembly sequence and reassemble the item.
All repairs shall be made in a workmanlike manner. Scratches, toolmarks, abrasions, scores, dents and
distortion of the repaired area are unacceptable.
Aluminum alloy surfaces having protective coating chipped off, scratches, or worn spots which expose
surface of the metal should be recoated at once as corrosion may develop rapidly.
While an injury to the skin covering caused by impact with an object is plainly evident, a defect such as
distortion or failure of the structure may not be apparent until some evidence develops on the surface.
Check for evidence of canted, buckled or wrinkled covering, and loose rivets or working rivets.
