Default Chipped Canopy

Hello everybody,

Strong winds slammed my canopy shut, a chip broke off.

Can anybody recommend a product I could use to glue the chip back on?

Appreciate the help.

happy RV-7 flyer

Try Weld-On 16. That'll reattach it, but the break itself will still be evident.

The horse may have left the barn, but in case you don't already have these...

I installed them and they do work well. Might help in the event of a slammed-down canopy, but what really works there is *any* kind of gust lock. I use a piece of stiff Parker Parflex hose, slit lengthwise, and slipped over the extender on the lifts. And I am *religious* about putting it in *any* time the canopy is up.

Good luck with the repair...let us know how it works out.
