How do you keep the materials from ripping/ shreding with the wind pulling on the top stretching when under way or trailering? 5200? Goop? options??? Thanks for the coming help.
Make your holes with a hot poker. Soldering iron or a heated scratch awl. It melts its way through sealing the fabric edge at the same time. You don't need grommets under a mounting plate
Good Luck
