Ultracote isn't cheap!

So I bought some Ultracote yesterday and did my first covering job ever last night! I only did the horiz. stab. but I am very happy with it overall. It was much easier than expected. The only trouble I had was adding the black trim. I thought it would be too hard to cut out a perfect "U" shape out of the black for the trim and get it lined up just right, so what I did was cut a long strip of black 1/4" wide and just fit it around the curve. I tried to get the wrinkles out of the trim the best I could, but there are still some around the curves.

How do y'all add trim like this? I'm sure there's a better way or a trick to get out the wrinkles on the curves.


Also, on the bottom of my iron's sock there are red lines from the red covering. I'm sure this means I'm doing something wrong, but what? Because of these red lines there is a little spot of red coloring on the cream section. How do I remove this red spot?

Anyway, here's some pics…
