Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Yes, just on top.
As a glue I always use Pritt-rollers:



I've tried other (cheaper) brands, but they do stick on the needle or are not as easy to handle.
The Pritt does not stick to the needle. I use it everywhere, Icarex on Icarex, Dacrontape, Spinnakertape, reinforcements, ...

I can do about 2 kites with one roller ($5), but for me, that is worth it.

Do you use the permanent or non-permanent?

Good to know Krijn, I have been using the pritt as well since I learned about it from you. Can't find it local so I have to order it online. It is easy to use and haven't had any gumming issues but never did any pinstripe over panel where the taped parts might overlap. I have been wanting to do pinstripes with Mylar Grin.

Permanent.
I've tried the non-permanent, but that one just won't stick.

Also, there is a refillable cassette available, but also: that one does not work for me.

Wow, good lookin' kite, Krijn. I never would've thought of those colors, but they look good. Love the design, too, Bill. Where's the video ?   Grin

It is just spinnakertape, 2.5cm wide. In length cut to strips from 0.8cm wide.
I glue it on top of the seams.

Krijn ...Thanks for taking the time to video & post your Valor video. I'm glad you were able to 'connect' with the Valor. You did a great job of showing the flight attributes of the Valor.
