Default super coverite edges

I just covered a rudder with Super Coverite and it was very easy to apply. It stretches easily around curves. It did leave a bit of a frayed edge here and there and I also got the impression that the glue was not as strong as monocote or ultracote.

How can I go about neatening up the joints? I was thinking about applying some thin dope along the joint. Would that work?

As for strength, I think I will use balsarite or stixit around the edges on the rest of the plane. Might not be necessary but it couldn't hoit.

Jeff, I'm not sure what you mean by "neatening up the joints", but if you want to tack them down better, thin CA works great.

Tacking it down better is what I need. There are little threads loose here and there but the CA should take care of it. I was concerned about the thin CA running rapidly and covering too large an area.
