Default VHB tape for trailing edge

Would someone be so kind as to tell me what size (3/4” of 1/2”) 3M 9460PC roll of VHB tape I should purchase for an RV-14A? Also, where in the states did you source it?

I think Van's sells rolls that would be appropriate length to build one RV-14 kit

Just buy it from Vans. I bought some from a different vendor and it wasn’t sticky enough to hold down the trailing edge. Bought from Vans and for the same price got a roll that was 2x as big, enough for the whole plane, and worked as advertised.

+1 on this. Bought it from amazon, the roll was full sized but it was heat damaged/old and wouldn't peel cleanly and wouldn't stick well. I returned it. The rolls I've gotten from van's have been perfect.
