NEW STUFF over old-stuff

How about techniques for using NEWSTUFF over old covering... aka zom-bee's?

I know it's a popular method for reviving the old dirty wings with minimal work.
Here's how I picture it (though I have yet to do it):

-prep: remove elevons, iron down old covering to get out most of the wrinkles

-???: thinned goop over the whole wing? 3m77??? something to increase the bond for what will be a ghetto composite?

-NEWSTUFF over the old stuff.

-reattach elevons

-fly faster!!

...any input on this re-covering technique would be appreciated. (Karl, Ian?)
