Gluing canopy

Postby easternjets on Wed Aug 19, 2015 6:21 pm

I'm just replacing the canopy in my Hawk and could use some advice on what to use in the way of adhesive to bond the canopy to the frame. I've got some canopy glue but it's been about as much use as mashed potato in the past!
I've a glue gun and I was looking at some silicon adhesive.
Anyone any other suggestions please?

I've always used silicon with good results.

Use magnets to hold in place 1 inside and 1 outside all the way round
