Default Monokote to Dope transition

Greetings- building a fun fly. Doped the front as you can see below in blue for fuel profing and went the rest of the way with monokote. What could/should I use to seal the seam between the two. OR a I just being too anal. I think though eventually the monokote will be ging to peel back.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

If you're worried about the seam lifting, (and it could) just spread a line of medium CA around the front edge of the MonoKote. That'll do the trick.

Default dope/monokote seam

You could seal the seam with clear fuel proof dope.

1/4 inch striping tape? Red or Navy blue would be nice.

Thanks everyone - excellent ideas.

I like the clear dope idea - I didn't think iut would stick to monokote. Will try that...
