good that you got it. you can try a smaller diameter fid. open up the cover with a large fid and feed the line with a smaller one. also try wetting the line where it is feeding thru. feed the fid thru shorter sections at a time. feed the line in and out and then go back into the same place it came out and then out futher down the line until you get the overlap you need.
