GP Cub J3 Covering

I was hoping to be flying by now but we have winter yet in SD. Snowed today. Question is--I need to fasten the covering on one outside aelerion edge where I trimmed some excess fold away to prevent binding. I was thinking about trying a regular Iron but since it is on a fold on the thin edge can I just use CA? It has the fabric type Great Planes CUB covering. This is my second ARF build so my covering skills are very weak.

CA will work.
I had the 20 size Cub covered with fabric first. It was kinda heavy.
I took the fabric off and re-covered with Monokote, losing a lot of weight in the process.

CA it is then! Thanks. I have plenty of power so the weight should be OK.
