rubbing strake and cleat fixing

boats having a bit of tlc ,ive covered the tubes and fitted new wear patches and i just need to check that i'm using the right glue on the new rubbing strake and new cleats.

i have sanded back the cleats and primed the pads with hypalon glue to leave over night before then reapplying the glue to stick.#

however the rubbing strake i have heard that this needs a pvc primer coat then hypalon over the top...?? is this right?
can i sand the strake and prime it with hypalon glue will it work ?

ive done a test piece to leave overnight but wondered if any here have any ideas.

That's fine just sand it right to the edge and prime it with Hypalon glue no need for the PVC glue.
