How much tape can I put on a slow stick wing?

I had a slowstick versus pool filter incident in the backyard which tore the wing up pretty good.

I did a tape repair job which seems like it will work ok. Haven't tried to fly again.

I had taped up the edges when it was built but now I'm wondering if it may be wortwhile to tape the entire underside of the wing ?

I don't think it will mind the weight much, but getting the tape to permanently stick to the underside may be a problem without using some spray adhesive. Also, I'm not really sure how much strength it will add.

I know boomerace has done some pretty extensive taping to his SS wings because of his BL setups - perhaps he can comment from personal experience.
