Smith Cub/ BCSC upper clam shell window install how to question

I have cut and fit the 1/8th Lexan and slid it into the frame of the upper half door on my Smith cub project, my question is how do you secure it with the leading edge of the door frame being open without a channel or trim to hold it in place ? is there a trim piece that caps the tube and glass? do you drill small holes and PK screw it to the tube? I could easily bend a cap out of .020 and screw it to the frame but I'm not sure if this is the right way to do it, figured I'd ask first before I make a mistake, anybody have a picture that would help? any information or input appreciated,
Thanks,

Rick
 
Yes, a piece of aluminum with a 90 degree angle at the leading edge screwed into the front of the window frame.
 
Why not go with plexi, it's a lot easier to clean without scratching.

I hear ya Glenn, went with lexan as the manual from BCSC suggested, if I had known of the superior qualities of Plexi, I would have probably gone that route, to late now as I have all the pieces for my L-21 cut and installed in Lexan, will have to be careful of scratching it, although lexan will rub out with the right product to buff it with and a little arm strong!

Thanks for your input

Steve, as always thank you so much for your efforts to help us Cub novices, I will bend up the piece I need and fasten with screws
your help is greatly appreciated.
