Cliff,
Either one would do the job. It's up to you on which one you use. I would use Solartex for fabric surfaces and flat colored film for metal surfaces. Just be sure you set your temperatures properly for the brand you're using. This will mean reading the instructions (a practice that seems anathema to many in the hobby). A silk and dope finish is a thing of beauty to be sure, but it is about 5x the work of an iron-on. Besides, if your wife doesn't like the smell of dope, then iron-ons are definately the way to go. Have fun whichever way you decide.
