I worked in sections gluing the binding. Starting from the tail I worked toward the neck doing a quarter of the guitar each time. If I had a longer strap I could have done a whole side at once. The solvent glue dries quickly so I apply it to a 4-6 inches at a time and wrap the band around the binding until I nearly reach the end of the glued section and repeat. This is a bit tricky without help but I managed using a spring clamp to hold the loose end of the band to the vice stand while I proceed with each gluing. I leave small spaces between each wrap so I can see if there are any problems with the surfaces mating correctly. The band puts nice even pressure all the way around the edge of the guitar.
