Fabric covering material replacement for Solartex. There is a material called CECONITE. This is the covering used in restoring full size
aircraft. Ceconite comes in three weights, the lightest is the one I will be using on any vintage sailplanes that require covering. Ceconite
does require a separate adhesive for application, and then is heat tightened just like Solartex and then can be painted. Be careful it does have good shrinkage.Ceconite and the adhesive is available from several aircraft material suppliers. I will be using WICKS, Highland, IL 800-221-9425 for my supplies. Ceconite comes by the yard and is 72 inches wide. Hope this helps.
