When the tires blew, the large heavy steel belted treads separated and hit the under belly skin, tearing it loose. Here it is all hanging down.


The factory had already cut into the skin and stitched it back together. I just duplicated their process to put the belly skin back in place. Here is a look before sealing it up with a caulking gun.


I will wipe the belly skin with alcohol to clean it so that the sealant will adhere well.

Here is a look at the factory’s ty wrap stitching and sealing up job looks like.


As you can see, the process makes a strong, well sealed repair.
