I have routed my track including the braid recess and want to start laying the braid. I will use double faced tape and I have read that it is best to paint the braid substrate with lacquer. This is a great idea as the surface is quite rough. Does anyone know if I can use Envirotex instead? I have a bunch left over from my water scenery and would like to use it up. Will the tape stick or is there something special about lacquer?

Painting the recess or just PVA sealer works fine. Just follow the normal painting procedure to get good paint adhesion.
Don't think we have Envirotex over here. You could try a short test piece and see how well it works.

Bit surprised the surface is quite rough, it is normally smooth after routing.

I did a test last night and it works great. The routed surface is relatively rough and the tape definitely holds better on the treated surface.
