I was able to get through about ½ of the riveting on the front deck/canopy frame. It went smoother than I thought and ended up turning out pretty nice.. My fit between the canopy frame and the front top skin remains very consistent. (but I have yet to mount the struts which might impact this fit.) It was amazing how strong this became… Its always funny how a few rivets makes the assembly bullet proof. I haven’t even started riveting the canopy frame stiffener assembly yet and it is super tight. I did put a few shims in the outside edge of the canopy frame, and will end up putting some #6 Stainless Washers in where the gaps are on the outside edge of the glare shield. All builders have to deal with this problem, and I think the washers are the simplest and elegant solution. I will show pics of this in later posts.
