Catz,
Do your sail panels look like this one does. If so you need to reattach the wxy points.
W Wraps around the glass flange so glass has to be out to do correctly otherwise you'll hafta tuck which won't be as nice a finish.
X is where there is a little clip like ones on door panels glued to backside of sailpanel with a square of very firm cardboard.
Y is where you wrap around the 1/4 glass flange and capture with the windlace.
I use glue at both ends to secure to flanges. You can make sail panels out of thin boarding material and cover with vinyl. When you do so leave an inch of material at each end to wrap and glue to flanges.
Its the X attachment that often fails and sail panels flop so use a good contact adhesive to hold backing to backing for clip.
