Hi everyone! This is my first time asking for help in here! This is the situation: My boyfriend and I are restoring a PA-12 super cruiser from 1947. So... we are just getting started. We are from Argentina, so a couple a months ago we purchase Stewart System Ekobond in USA and we brang it back to the south. But we wanted to use DOPE on top of it Just spent the last week getting my first experience with the Stewarts System by covering the horizontal stabilizers on my Javron cub. To spread out the costs and stage the delivery of materials, they sent me all supplies needed to cover the tail surfaces with manuals and detailed instructions. From what I can tell from research, the fabric cement Ekobond is neoprene based, very similar to. Check out this video, very informative on using latex paint over Stewart systems. I plan on using 3m fastbond 30 (suppose to be the same adhesive as ekobond) with latex primer to fill the fabric. Others who have used this speak highly of the process
I prefer Stewart Systems EkoBond adhesive instead of the MEK based products. The stuff does not stink and is super easy to use. You simply paint it on, let it dry a little, lay the fabric in place, and press the fabric into the glue. If misalign the fabric you can pick it back up and reposition it As mentioned Poly-Tac (and Super Seam Cement) will make a mess out of polyurethane varnish. Stewart Systems Ekobond might be compatible with polyurethane varnish. I used epoxy varnish on the surfaces that were going to get Poly-Tac (no polyurethane varnish under it) and polyurethane everywhere else.

The Fastbond is what most of us believe is the same glue as Stewart System EkoBond glue. The red stuff is part of the Poly-Fiber system. The two systems should not be mixed. Pick one or the other and go with it. The Poly-Fiber system has been around since the 50's or 60's and.
It seems that Stewart System used thinned Ekobond as the primer before the paint. The WienerDogAero guy instead used some Gribber primer. That may be a better looking option than the green Ekobond. I also like the cost saving aspect of it. It looks like that I have enough fabric already. So all I needed now is just some 3M 30-NF and a few.
