Has anyone mounted one of the Mini Vigor canopies on a Venture frame?? This one came from MTA, and it appears to have some "issues".

I was told that they mounted up with no mods required, but after getting the canopy, it appears that the front standoffs need to be much shorter. Also, the top of the opening by the mechanics needs to be hogged out some with a Dremel as the two aft linkages touch the canopy. Anybody had this experience?? All information and solutions would be appreciated.

I did the same dremel work on my stock mini vigor canopy that came with my Voyager 50. The rods 'could' hit the canopy without the change and I didn't want to take the chance.
I have a few pics on my web site of mine, if your interested: http://www.concepts.to/voy_web/

Yes, the exact same for me.

I havent thought about shortening the front stand offs, but did notice that it was really tight against the canopy when trying to install it. Right now I am trying to figure out how to fix my mounting holes for the grommets on the right side. The factory marks were off a little bit and I had to enlarge the holes to about 8 mm. Have to figure out how to install the grommets in the larger holes. Thinking about gluing them in after the canopy is finished.

Scott Grey Grommets?

A bigger grommet was something I had thought of. Where can I get them?
