I added about a 1/4inch overlap of fiberglass on the sides and about an inch on the back of the tip up. It added a lot of rigidity to the tip up. But also added weight. I had to get a little stronger shocks to hold the thing up in the wind.
would I do it again, yes, but I would have used carbon fiber and really paid attention to weight.
Ill try to post some pictures
