I think most people including myself use CA. The pink (or thin) ZAP stuff comes highly recommended and does a great job.

+1 on CA. I have tried the nail polish and it's too soft even after it's completely dry. And it doesn't penetrate the CF. If you are looking for color, do the CA, then add color with nail polish or other paint.

I found the thin CA to work the best. Just be careful not to apply too much at once otherwise it will run all over the flat part of the chassis.

Do you use cotton buds to cover the chassis edges with CA? I find that the CA reacts with the cotton, some times heating the buds so they start smoking.

I use a toothpick or the tiny hose that the bottles sometimes come with. I stopped using cotton balls for the same smirking reason

I use a black sharpie on the edges and then use Blue Locktite.
