If you wanted to re-do it, just tape it a bit further back so it's not visible.

I'm not an expert on this but I think you want some gaps in the tape to allow any water that gets in there to be able to drain.

I think its fine, thats how mine kinda looks too. It bugged me at first so i heated it up really good with a blow dryer and held it down tightly with painters tape, and left it out in the sun for a few days. Looks fine now. If it still bothers you then the only thing I can suggest is using thinner double sided tape but it might not adhere as well.

i guess i will just leave it like that since that stays really strong. and covered the top parts around. maybe make up some more 3m with heat gun.
