In the pictures below you will note that the .040 wide “Pink-it” rib tape starts at the trailing edge & goes over the top of the rip on the upper surface, down over the leading edge then back under the wing to the trailing edge. The .080 wide tape goes over the rib tape along the leading edge from root to tip. The wing is ready to add simulated stitching to the ribs using drops of white glue.
