Re: trim coming loose

I have seen some peeps go around all the trim edges with a Q tip and thin CA, but I use a small fine brush and automotive Urethane Clearcoat.

You can fly Hitec or use the other "low tech" stuff!!

Re: trim coming loose

I have the same plane. That covering is terrible. It does not stick well. I actually got medium ca with a fine applicator and put a tiny drop under the corners or anything that was lifting and stuck it down.

Re: trim coming loose

CA works great. But be careful if you use the thin. It's quick but it'll drip/run (past the edge of the trim)when you press it down if you use too much. A tiny bit is all you need and then use a scraper--plastic credit card works--to get it nice and flat.
