Blacknell Bullet information/photos sought

I have recently had the good luck to purchase a Blacknell Bullet which will someday (SOME DAY) be mated with one of my Vincents. The sidecar has been completely and beautifully restored but does not have a tonneau nor a passenger canopy (or whatever that is called). Indeed, it doesn't have any connection points for these bits. So what I am seeking is good photographs which may show the cockpit and surrounding body where the tonneau or canopy may have attached, and the frame work for the canopy.

Any help is very much so appreciated.

Looks similar to the Steib set up, using press studs around the screen and body and a supporting frame inside. A Tonneau might be the easiest way to go to keep the rain out, again using press studs.
