Ideas for our bimini enclosure

We are about a month out from a new bimini enclosure around the flybridge. We could use some ideas for thinks to add, things to avoid, things you added and don't use, things you wish you did when you got yours done, colors (although, I think we are going with a sand color with dark green piping).

We aren't adding any new bowing. We currently have a 5-bow rig that seems sturdy. We were originally going to only have three removable panels in front to protect us from weather. Well, we may opt for a full enclosure now. HOWEVER, all the panels must be able to be completely stowed, rolled up, and/or removed. We love the open air and want to drop the top sometimes, or just have a no-obstructions view from the flybridge. Nor are we fans of giant U-zipper "windows". We are going to have to have a few of them, but we don't want that to be the only portal to the outside world.

Love to hear your ideas. Here is a pic for reference.
