Hi. I need some tips on how to cover the rudder horn neatly. This is for an S1 rudder, but I think the horns are much the same with the skybolt, etc.

AT present I have just cut a slit in the fabric, and the horn pokes out on either side, but I'm sure it could be done better? Do you use tabes to glue the fabric to the horn itself?

Anyone done this and got pleasing results?
