Hi dfink,
Can you tell me what kind of epoxy is this? Would those at Home Depot works as well as this? Also, can you tell if this epoxy is better or the yelly thing for fiberclass will bind better?

These were ground down to the hook shape shown. The top clamp makes it adjustable and it really pulls the top down nice. The second are is the rear seal. This is an epdm seal from mcmaster. I think it was part number 1120A821 I can recheck my invoice. It makes a nice seal on the inside and I think ties in the top on the outside. The very rear is held down by a piece of aluminum angle that is epoxied to the inside edge. When putting the top on the back is just slid under the existing edge and then layed in place. Two rear clamps and the two front clamps and your done.
