I'm not sure how this goes and I know it's not correct but it's going to have to work and look close. Should the metal at the corners have two 45 degree angles where it meets? I think there should be a solid sheet of metal under the turtle deck but I put plywood there years ago. I'm trying to get it all fitted then I can take the pieces off to paint them. I got some trim from a metal building supplier. When I get done I can get the correct fasteners. What type and size screws hold the half round trim on? Should it be half oval or round?

This is from an original 13, I think they are the same?

Thanks for the pic. I think when I get the trim and some paint it'll look good. Looks better brown than just bare wood.

No. I've got some trim but I think it's too wide. If I can get it painted that will be good for now. I need to try and save up and find a windshield next.

OK.
"If I can get it painted that will be good for now." Works for me. :-)
That trim looks pretty good, actually.
