A feature of the Dove construction is the use of Redux to secure the stringers to the skin for parts of the fuselage, main plane, tail plane and fin with a single curvature. This process involves the application of controlled heat and pressure during construction, but normal repair methods can be applied to Reduxed members. Where there is double curvature the stringers are secured to the skin either by spot welding or riveting.
