Default Mix Monokote and Ultracote on opposite wing halves?

Quick question. Generally speaking, I don't like to mix types of covering. Having said that, I've got some monokote on the shelf I'd like to use on my venture .60. However, for covering the lower halves of each wing, I want to use the stock checkerboard pattern in Ultracote.

Since I'm not laying one on the other, I don't think this will cause a heat problem due to the different glue activation temps. I would assume I'd need to do the Monokote first, then follow with Ultracote at a lower temp setting.

Am I missing something?

Bottom is Ultracote and the top is Monokote, no problem putting them on. I did the bottom first then the top. Hope this helps answer your question.

You shoud'nt have any problem "mix and matching" Ultra and Mono.

In fact i had at one time covered a wing in Mono and stripped it with Ultracoat.

I have a Venture 60, it's a great plane!!

Because the Ultracote shrinks at a lower temp, you should put the Monokote on first, lower the temp on your iron, and then use ultracote on top of (or next to) the mono.
