I'll use the tape on the interior joint because I have it, but I'm wondering how transparent it will be on the outside.

It would be worth a few dollars- 6" of tape and a shot of epoxy, some cedar scraps - to do a quick test to see how it wets out.
BTW, even lighter 'weight' tape can fail to wet out completely transparently. I got some lightweight tape on clearout which I won't use in many places for that exact reason.
Experiments can save a lot of anguish!
