Canopy frame and screws

Some of the screws go into the steel angle inserts in the frame. I also threaded the steel angles, but these stainless MS screws are not really up to quality to handle this. They will bite between the aluminium and steel and it all ends with the head of the screw being twisted off.

Re-drilled and threaded to M4 standard and used some real industry quality M4 screws instead (made of real steel, and with metric shaped threads). Doing this, and all of a sudden the biting problem was gone. Only had umbraco heads avaiable, but will probably change them later.

Sloooowly, but surely this canopy is finally coming together....
