The door has a frame for drilling, attaching with self-tappers (hex-head screws) actually- remove one of them and look at it. Has a cut across the tapered threads for piercing metal without drilling- I installed them for 3 months before travel time was too excessive. Forget tape. IMO, use some flat washers with st screws in a grid pattern on each panel, if the FG is compressed enough- the skrim coating should hold together, no perimeter support required. Add more field screws, the FG can't be that heavy.

If any ads are present below my answer or words underlined/colored, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed/linked to, they are there without my consent.
17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?

Hi all,

Here is I solved it:

Material used to fix the panels:

1) Braid nylon rope: $ 1.49 x 2
2) Gorilla white duct tape (only for aesthetics) $11.00

No drills or extra screws, I used the existing ones to pass the rope and create a perimeter on each panel.

It takes time if you are precise as I tend to be, you have to cut the panels from 22" to 21" inches and customize all the corners, you need somebody to help to keep the panels in place when fixing the retainer clips and tight the rope.

I like the result and I hope this helps other Canadians with doors like mine to find a cheap and 'light' way to fix the panels.
No adjustment to the force of the garage door opener was needed.
