Anyone got any ideas on repairing a standard raptor canopy? I made a mistake and cut one of the grommet holes too large! Have tried too epoxy a blank in place using spare material from the canopy bubble cut out but it doesn't like to stay there.Any ideas (replacement canopies are quite expensive)

Degrease it thoroughly, lightly rough up the surface with wet and dry and then use silicon sealant. If it holds glass fishtanks together, it should would like a dream on your canopy!

Find a "grommet supplier" (i.e. hardware store) and see if you can get new ones with a larger outside diameter and a stock size inside hole.

Then you'll just have to cut the other side big so they match :c)

I'm sure I have some here as I've done the same thing, if you'll pay to ship over the pond I'll send you a couple.

Have a look in either RS or Maplins, they stock rubber grometts of all sizes, a lot cheaper than the TT ones also.....
