Wipe with a cloth moistened with
methyl ethyl ketone TT-M-261
Apply a sufficient amount of
contact adhesive 1300Lto cover the inside surface of
the rubber and the mating surface.
Allow adhesive to dry until tacky.
Carefully fit and press the molding
over the edge of the panel.
Clean dirt and dust accumulation
detergent. Do not use methyl ethyl ketone for cleaning
the fiberglass backing
Prolonged contact of the fiberglass
to methyl ethyl ketone or acetone will
result in detenoration of the resin.
Rinse the washed area with clear
water and dry panel with a soft cloth Then permit panel
to dry out thoroughly.
Touch up repaired areas of spall
shield and fiberglass backing with acrylic lacquer, MIL-L-
Apply a base coat of epoxy primer,
MIL-P-23377. Feather the primer coating onto to
surrounding color coat.
Allow the primer to air dry for a
minimum of 30 minutes.
Apply two coats of acrylic lacquer to
match the original finish color as applicable.

equipment devices may be assembled from webbing,
nets, rope, cables, or fittings Use snaps, hooks, clamps,
buckles or other acceptable fasteners. Install tensioning
devices or other means to provide a method of
tightening and adjusting restraint system. Provide
covers or guards to prevent damage to or jamming of
aircraft equipment, structure, or control cables. Inspect

movements of a component. They are utilized with
panels, and other like equipment requiring shock
a. Type of Vibration Isolators. Vibration isolators
are commonly classified in three types open-type,
closed-type, and combined vibration isolator mounting
Open-type. Open-type vibration isolators
are those on which the shock absorbing material is
exposed, and are usually so constructed that the load is
supported on rubber in shear (A and B, figure 9-40) or
compression (C, figure 9-40).
isolators are those on which the shock absorbing
material is enclosed by a metal cup or housing The
shock absorbing material is usually a coil spring, rubber,
or metal mesh In compression, or a combination of
these materials as shown in figure 9-41.
Combined vibration isolator mounting
base type. Combined vibration Isolator mounting base
type vibration isolators are formed by combining
resilient material such as sponge rubber, metal mesh
pads, or coil springs with a mounting base and
supporting structure as shown in figure 9-42.
Installation of Vibration Isolators. Installation of
vibration Isolators should be accomplished in such a
manner as to allow free movement of mounted
equipment with adequate clearance around brackets,
piping lines, and other items of equipment. Accomplish
the following procedures when Installing vibration
clearance between equipment and nearest supporting
A vertical and horizontal clearance of
Maintain adequate distance between
mounted equipment and nearest
object (bracket, pipe, line, structure,
