1961 Astrodome

I'm ready to install my new Astrodome but have nothing to look at as mime was not there.
Not loving the idea of rivetimg directly to hing on top of closer. How about alum pieceson top using 1\4 blind rivets from the inside?
Some pictures would be AWESOME!
Sorry for spelling, on my tablet.

Your roof flange should be made up of 4 pieces, 2 sides and 2 ends.

Current Astrodomes most likely will not fit, unless you remove one of the end pieces and move in inward, about ball park, 1/2 inch.

You can use pop rivets, but seal them properly.
