I think I will put a hinge on the front, screw a thin sheet of ply and secure it by a rubber band. seen a bottle section also suggested but it would need reinforced edges I think..

Been there, done that.

I have since used this very simple method of keeping everything together.

This wont help you find the lost one but you wont lose another one.

Two round toothpicks have cured my canopy from lifting off. It's the volume of air passing thru the vents that cause the front to lift up. The t/p's eliminate the lifting.

Well destiny dictates and looks like I will be going down that path. Thanks for the other suggestions but the horse has bolted.
