Where to get my canopy repaired?

My canopy is in need of some TLC and was wondering if anyone knows a shop that does work on canopies? Cap-It in Coquitlam is useless, tried that once.

Basically, I need some rivets replaced (and some are the special flush mounted ones on the window), something to prevent the glass from sliding side-to-side, the rear window rubber is coming out that holds it in place, plus I need new prop cylinders.

Please and thanks

Ian

^ I'm thinking by the time I buy the special rivets for the door and whatever gun mounts them (there are only two rivets and they are tiny) - plus another large rivet gun for the round head rivets at the back, I could probably pay someone to do it a few times. I don't play with glass, either.

I'll check Princess Auto - thanks

I just saw this, when we cleaned out our garage last I found an old small rivet gun. The box even had some rivets in it. I am sure I kept it.

I'll see if I can find it sometime this week and I will PM you or post pictures. Maybe if it looks like it could work we can work something out and fix the canopy...

^ Thanks for the offer. The small rivets are a flush mount rivet for the side window - which I can't find. The rear window needs some massive rivets and my neighbours gun is too small for those
