I can never understand FG manufacturers. One of their big selling points is the one piece, leak free fiberglass shell, and then they proceed to drill all kinds of holes in the thing. I like the Burro solution with a molded in drip cap.

However, you have already done your repair so my advice is moot. Good luck, it should last a long time.
Hi Roger. I gave serious thought to doing as you suggest and decided I was not comfortable with the possibility of having the cap break loose as I was going down the highway. It also would make replacement a bit more of a project. This really was an easy fix. It was one of those "fix it now before it gets worse" things. I was afraid if water got in there over the winter, by next spring I would have a much worse situation. Thanks for the thought, Raz
