Final step before going back to fitting the canopy frame is to rivet the side rails and all the rivets around the F705/Roll bar junction. You can see in the pics I got through all this and was able to rivet the side rails. The pics don't due it justice, the rivets popping out of the black paint look great.. I just hope the paint lasts. Time to be careful now and make sure no scratches happen during the rest of construction.
I also mounted the canopy latch with "lightening" holes built in.. Probably not a lot of weight savings, but sure looks cool..
