My first attempts at Koverall. The Oracover heat activated adhesive worked ok. However I found I had to be very careful not to shrink the material too much with the heat gun as it will pull off the surface. I am now giving it a light shrink after ironing the edges on and giving the edges a coat of dope. I then let that dry and then applied the heat gun very carefully. I have just given the first panel 2 coats of dope and they seem ok.

I made a paper template to aid cutting the Koverall accurately with a new scalpel blade and I masked off the area around the template so the glue was applied to the correct place. This worked well.
