Help!
Covering protection on an old kit...

Just bought a Seagull extra 300 ARF kit from LHS, which had it sitting around for a long time on the shelf. Got it for a discounted price which was great but I knew it would require some work on it.

Upon bringing it home and closer inspection, i've noticed that the covering has started coming off around the edges at some places. The balsa looks good though. So, what is the best way to fix this? I have not started assembling it yet, thought I would remedy this before I started.

Should I just CA this along the edges? Tape it? what is the best way to preserve the covering?

I would try to re-iron it first. If it won't stick than maybe a bit of heat activated contact adhesive like Sig Stix-it. The seal the seams with some CA.
