yes correct, on the flat surface of the hub that the wheel mates to, there is a round lip on the circumference of the hole in the middle, just fold the extra unused width of the PVC tape into the center hole. Clean it with a wire brush and brake cleaner and let dry before applying tape. Also, when I had my drive drive rebuilt, they marked with arrows each half to align the spline that separates both drive shaft halves and also threaded in a hex grub screw to ensure once the drive shaft was fully installed, and tightened there was no play in the center spline bearing. Those spline pin bearings where the two halves meet (in front of the universal joint) were also replaced.
