So you did area #1 (back to front), then area #2 (back to front)......etc. PM sent. Thanks.

Yes on "back-to-front" Tony. In other words, entire surface area within a dotted blue box has epoxy applied to it, curves and all. Once working area is covered evenly & smoothly with a skim of epoxy, and I'm sure the wet epoxy edge that butts a cured edge has no "mound" of epoxy, then...
1. masking tape is removed and the vinyl is laid over working area
2. on top deck, crevice is pushed in with tubing
3. vinyl surface is lightly rubbed to force epoxy gel slightly into backing
4. on top deck, tube is held in crevice (11 minutes from when a batch of 5-minute epoxy is mixed.)
