I use nylon cords with a 9" lengths of bungee, just to maintain tension.
I'd be careful using long bungees - particularly at face level.
This year I might do away with the bungee, and tie down using a 'trucker's hitch' (Google is your friend!)

Yes this is exactly what I have rigged, I think bungees are ugly.

I will still leg it in adverse weather conditions:)

Depends which model you have, the fixed end of the roof should be stable enough, it is the loose end that if not held while assembling and disassembling that causes trouble on windy days.
Always point the fixed end in to the wind then turn the unit to the desired position once assembly is complete, has always worked for me.
