Default repair crack in canopy

Plane sat outside (cannopy cover on) for a week in Colodado. When I went to leave, discoverd a 5 inch crack in canpoy. Plane has 100 hrs on it. I stop driiled, taped it, and flew home. Has anyone had any experience with a crack repair. I was thinking of Weldon #3 or #4 wicked into the crack. It will no doubt be visible after the gluing but right now don't want to go to the expense in time and money to replace the bubble. Please don't comment on sika flex vs screwing the instalation as I have read all those arguments. Just looking for coments on repairs at this time. However if someone knows of a good deal on a new canopy available for sale, I'd like to here about that as some day I will be replacing it.
