My project has gotten delayed with cancer treatment but I want to go ahead and at least get the canopy mounted. I just purchased the finish kit before the cancer and I would like to get the canopy in a safe position. I have moved it twice now and at some point it is probably going to get damaged. Does anyone have any preference for good tools to do the mounting and fiberglass work? I have no body or fiberglass tools yet. Jim

Be well soon Jim.
Not to push my blog but there's a lot of info on canopy and fiberglass.
This may help.
