for base level, no. if you were going for centurion, you would need to have the strip cover all the return edges.

That v-shaped double point where the red lines are doesn't look that good. I would consider trimming away the green circled area to make that a flat edge, single point (if that makes sense). And, if you're concerned about the return edge, don't be...it's ok to not have them there. If you still want a return edge for that "thicker" armor look, you can use some boiling water to soften the ABS at the top there, and carefully bend the cut to make a new return edge.

You could also put a different cover strip there, and bring it all the way to the top (covering the 'V'), and cutting it to shape.
