INSPECTION-ACCEPTANCE AND REJECTION CRITERIA
Check cab cover: Mark defects to be repaired.
Check tensile strength of fabric: Grasp a small fold of fabric between thumb and forefinger of each hand, gripping it
closely so tips of forefingers touch. Test material against threads that run the length of material. The weaker cross
threads should not be used for testing tensile strength. Tug material several times. If it does not rip, it is repairable. If it
tears on first tug, test several areas for extend of damage. Weak sections must be replaced.
Check fabric: Repair sections that have been weakened by stains or that cannot be brushed clean. Repair or replace
sections that are worn or torn or have a large number of patches.
Check stitching: Repair runoffs and broken threads. Restitch weak stitching and open seams.
