Thanks John and Cliff

Have ordered one👍

Only places I could find one was in Europe, the cost with carriage (excluding any custom duties) was around £37.00 😵 which is far too much for what it is.

Cheers

Martin, give Cliff a call as he cut som PTEG blanks & slide strips for his 1/3 scale K13 canopy when I built that for him a couple of years ago. The slide strips were carefully screwed onto the canopy glazing with tiny screws once the vent aperture had been removed.
Cliff’s post below shows the K13 installation.
