Fix one mistake, cause another...

Hi Bruce,

Maybe you can use this question in your tutorial. After reading your reply and learning that So-Lite should not be applied two layers thick, I decided to cut away the white covering where I wanted the red to go.

I made a perfectly straight line from stab to cowl and was able to remove the white from the lower fuse sides. Unfortunately, in admiring my handiwork (and I use the term loosely), I discovered that I made the cut exactly where I wanted the border to be, and now I don't have any white covering to overlap the red onto! If I move the red higher, it won't look right, because I wanted the red to be dead even with the rear horizontal stabilizer.

Will it be ok if I am able to butt the red against the white? If it will work like this, I can apply a really thin strip of pressure sensitive striping to cover any minor misalignment between the red and the white.


EDIT: I couldn't wait any longer. I went ahead and butted the red up against the white. I got lucky because there's no gaps or misalignments. Here's a pic of it. I shouldn't need any trim tape to hide the joint... it's pretty straight.
