we already do a swing out version this time we´re trying to mount them so they open with the rear door, with the help of a hidden rear subframe to stiffen up the door and some rollers and stronger dampers and some other stuff, not very technical just a case of try something new until it stops falling apart then figure out what you did that made it not fall apart and if it was one thing or a series of things then you say ok that works, what should we do next? :idea it kind of never ends really but thats what makes it fun :D

its all a bit shiney so a bit difficult to see but we folded some 3mm alu plate to make a bit of angle and the seals are tapped down onto them

Jason, these canopies look spectacular.

Can you tell me how the "folded 3mm plate" is attached to the main aluminum structure? I don't see any welds in your photos.
