Having used Oratex, I can say, if you have any questions, ask Lars. He will be happy to tell you how to apply and integrate Oratex to your project.

Page 9 of my Oratex thread

And no EXTRA tape over the rivets is NEEDED because of the glue - you should put a little extra glue on them before the Oratex tapes go on

I did not use the glue on the rivets but wish that I had. I think that it would have made for a smoother look around each rivet - that is the worst part of the whole thing - ironing around the rivets. If I do another one I will not use rivets. I will rib-stitch. The tail where I used rib stitching was MUCH EASIER to iron the tapes on.

The glue is good enough that you prob dont need anything - but not willing to risk my life on glue I would stitch using existing holes.

Lars would say it’s good enough without stitching, or finishing tapes. However, when we were covered my wings, I told Chris I wanted both the rivets and finishing tapes. The reason was for resale & safety. When I decide to sell the plane, everyone would question the construction if I didn’t rivet, or rib stitch the wings and if I didn’t use finish tapes. Now I know the Oratex glue is extremely strong, but in my opinion I’m not willing to risk my life on a wing with the fabric just glued on.

You have to have a 1 inch wide Cap strip in order to have glue only. Anything less and it does not meet the TSO. It is certified in Europe on light sport. I assume it will be soon be certified here as well.
