Tubes hard or soft for glueing rubber cleats ?

As title says, what's the best way ?

Is it .....
Tubes pumped up hard to give best shape ? If so, what's the best way to ensure maximum rubber contact with the tubes curved surface ?

Or is it .....
Tubes slightly deflated to give a flatter surface to work on ?

Thanks in advance for any helpful advice !

Pump them hard for surface prep, gluing and fitting then roll the air out of the joint surface as hard as you can with a small roller or end of a screwdriver handle. Then deflate so you can roll the joint even harder against the hull flange or by folding the tube flat and using a step ladder or whatever underneath to get firm support under the joint.
