Re: Fiberglass Panels For Hard Top Bimini?

Does it need to also seal the edges? Black TrimLoc might be OK if the edges are already sealed.

Thanks Mark will check. Went to West Marine today and found vinyl shroud covers that will work. Will have to attach some how maybe SS brads.

That's the beauty of Trimloc - it has an internal attachment method so doesn't need brads, glue, etc. 1 8" Black Edge Trim Lok camper Trailer RV Seal Lock Boat Vinyl | eBay (it comes in different sizes and thickness - this is just an example)

That Trim Lok looks like it will do the corners well.

Samantha ann, Do you need anything on the edge at all. A coat of white gelcoat or paint on the top and it will look finished.

Re: Fiberglass Panels For Hard Top Bimini?

I am very interested in a non-canvas cockpit cover solution and this post was awesome.
