Default RV-14 Trailing Edge Assembly

Can I get some advice on attaching the rudder trailing edge “wedge” to the skins? I ordered the 3M double sided tape Vans recommends in the manual but I’ve also been hearing pro-seal is the best product to use. I’ve never used either, but the tape seemed the easier of the two.

Thank you.
Steve

Both work well but the 3M tape is easier to use/apply. The trick is to clean and scuff pieces well. I also used a bit of heat with my heat gun on the wedge first which made it stick really well.

Good luck.
