Post cure would be exposing the parts to 150 degrees for an expended period of time. I tend to even put parts in my car for a couple days to,post cure them. Not nessesary unless the parts will see a higher then normal temp while in use or in your case will see some heat during covering. Yes you would want to do the post cure prior to anything else. Without getting too technical the higher temp will result in a more complete crossslink of the two epoxy components making a stronger part that will withstand more heat before getting soft.
