There was a very slight gap between the outer edge of the laminate and the inner edge of the frame. That's what I filled. When I masked for painting of the frame I put the tape just inside of that gap and then effectively painted over it so it wouldn't show.
Thanks. I'm going to imitate you on this for sure
