    If it is covered with Stewart Systems all the way, you should be able to shrink it out. Sometimes on the experimental airplanes people will use a variety of products, for example, latex paint. If that is the case, it’s hard to say. If you use a heat gun be very careful not to over temp the fabric! You can also use an iron on the back side of the fabric if it’s accessible so you don’t mar the paint.

    *Instead of using a heat gun, use your iron with a sock on the soleplate over the area and it should not mar the paint.
