suggestions with perimeter tape around a light socket

I'm putting perimeter tape on a Taylorcraft rudder. Unfortunately, there is a ring welded right in the middle of the trailing edge designed to mount a light. How do I continue perimeter tape around that socket? Can't go right over it ! - Mike

it's best to look at other covered aircraft for an example but the most common way to do it is to end the perimeter tape at the socket and to make a round patch to cover the socket.  Lay it across on the bias so it will wrap across the curved surface better.
