Default Assembling Battery Packs

First I must apologize for what is a basic stupid question but I am back in RC Onroad after being away for 15 years. Back in the day we used to assemble packs with crazy glue and baking powder as a filler to make them strong. From what I have read it appears that shoe glue is the way to go now so is there any trick to it or just put on the goo.

I keep my pack in the Deans Battery jig, then spread the shoe goo between the cells. Let dry for a bit then take out of the jig (after soldering the bars on). Not sure if this is the best way but it worked for me.

I stopped gluing my packs.

I just run a loop of straping around the battery to keep them together. Reason why: When I strap the cells to the chassis, the tape around the cells keep the tape holding the battery to the chassis from getting dirty and loosing stickyness.
