i was planning to use double sided adhesive tape with the acrylic
the problem is at the bottom and at the top there is no space for the acrylic

any suggestions how to fix this?


You don't need double sided tape at the top and bottom with it cut so close it will just have to be held on by the sides. a little rubber on the edges could potentially cover most of that up too.

Edit - make sure you cut the acrylic big enough !

all you need is 1/8th of an inch between the lip (thing sticking out) and the cut. You should be okay from what I can see

I looked at the photos and you'll need to precisely cut the acrylic long enough, otherwise you'll see the "air conditioned" openings.

 

My advice take it or leave it: Take your time!!  Can't stress that enough!!  Slow is good!!

mine looks pretty much the same as yours and I used a dab of super glue on all 4 corners, the double sided tape made a slight space I didn't like

I saw that and that's why the "precisely cut the acrylic long enough" this is so that it's snug fitting on the top and bottom.

 

This is why time and thought should have been taken to not cut as much off the panel as you did.

 

The "damage" is done and just adding another piece of flexible is not going to make it much better that's if you can cut it to the same edge which I say it'll be just about impossible to get it that good plus you'll see the crease.  Just cut it correctly the first time even if it's a tad (and I mean a tad) too big you can file off the extra.  This is not a "perfect" scenario to be in, but it is what it is.
