Canopy Skirts Glued and Riveted
Canopy and Skirts all riveted. I hope all the extra work applying the SikaFlex adhesive was worth it. So far, So Good, No Cracks anywhere! I'm happy with the results.
Canopy Interior. Looks pretty sweet!
Close up of the interior Canopy Skirts. You can see the SikaFlex(black)in between the rails and ribs of the Canopy Frame. There was a ton of prep work involved with getting the Sika all glued in place.
