I am recovering my first plane. I bought it used and after learning to fly it was in need of a new skin. I have stripped all of the old covering and plan on starting on the fuselage first as it seems like it would be the easiest. I have done some research on applying monocote and think I understand the process. Now my question is do I have to remove the control surfaces to get an acceptable job for the covering? I realize it may not be perfect doing it this way but I don't feel real comfortable cutting the old hinges and then trying to install new. Also anything else to watch out for?
Thanks for the help.
