I actually use "Balsaloc" to attach the covering as you can just iron the covering on with a low temp iron (not hot enough to shrink the covering but enough to activate the Balsaloc). Once attached I brush dope around the edges and any undercamber to lock the covering to the structure and then start the shrinking process with a hotter iron.

How do you get to the under camber, after you have sealed the edges??

Just leave the covering slack enough to be able to get it to reach the under cambered ribs Barry, then shrink to tighten once secured. :roll:

I attach to the root and tip first and then starting at mid chord work forwards and backwards attaching it to the undercamber before securing it to the leading and trailing edges !!
