Default Canopy

I did mine in chilly temps in May. Just heat the area before cutting. Actually, I never got above 70. Pretty cold at 7,500'. It can be done. Now I'm working a one piece fiberglass skirt. I would recommend getting the frame as close as possible plus 1/2-3/4" before touching the canopy.

I cannot be, nor will I be, held responsible if you try to do the same things I do and it does not work and/or causes you loss, injury, or even death in the process.
