I have ultracote pieces ironed on to my fiberglass cowl and they are sticking fine. The fiberglass was painted first and the ultracote is used as a trim color on the flat surfaces of the cowl. You can't very well use ultracote on compound curved surfaces.

You can, it just takes "lots" of patience..... heat and pull... heat and pull... It will compund curve better than monokote in my experience.

try 'painting' the cowl with some white glue and when dried, cover it with your iron on covering...sticks well!
