Ever since my first glass canopy, I added a thin layer of cloth & glass to each side on the inside & then re-drilled the hole for the grommet.
Just a tad too flimsy for my taste.

and one more thing "DON'T BE AFRAID!"

Hi all,

would cloth an epoxy work to strengthen this? I don't have fiberglass hanging around.

I'm looking at the raptor 50v2 canopy, might give it a try.

Cheers,
Leslie

I used thin fiberglass cloth and 2 part epoxy, works great.
The Align glass canopy is very brittle.

For the love of the hobby

just go to an auto parts store, even a Home Depot probably has the fiberglass cloth and resin but almost any auto parts store should have it.
