Default Best practice when gluing sidewalls

I was unable to find a thread on this topic.

​​​​​​How do you guys glue your sidewalls for touring cars?

How I done it is clean the surface and run a bead 59mm in diameter. After it dries I will sand the CA and run another light coat.

Am I missing anything? The glue gets cracked after a race day. I am unsure if this has an effect on performance it is rather annoying.
