To get the servo wires thru, I like to use a tiny bit of masking tape or scotch tape to jake it smooth from the plug to the string. The real trick though is to twist the servo wire (rotate the servo multiple times while gently pulling the string. the twisting will help it line up every 180 degrees.

As far as the CA on the monokote - been there. It stinks. I was SO mad on my first SE5 when I did that.

Get yourself a spray can of Matte or Flat clear spray, and LIGHTLY coat the whole plane. You won't notice the CA nearly as much, and the plane won't look so much like a kids toy. (Krylon works, or some thing from a craft store).
