It would help to understand the engineering / technical reasons for your comment. As for the reasons I made the choice I did: I purchased the tape and fooled around with it enough to know that I might not be happy with the technique. I looked at other builders' sites and borrowed the JB Weld idea from one where the builders had used the technique successfully before and were taking exceptional care in every step of their build. I ended up going to proseal on the elevator for pragmatic reasons. I'm happy with both results.
I'm no engineer but since these edges are riveted together, I'm not sure I fully understand what issues might arise from one choice over another in the process of bonding them before riveting.
In any case I wouldn't presume to make recommendations to other builders, just sharing experience.....
