Default Canopy question

Installing my canopy and wondering about putting a strip across the front to rivet through verses just riveting through the glass. Any advise?

Not sure that's a good idea, I would stick with the plans. Thousands flying out there per plans with great results.

Default Sika

Agree, with recommendation from this site and one of the fellas that got real deep into this, I used Sika on a replacement. Came out very nice.
