Also, make sure the front top skin is at least clecoed on for every measurement and cut on the canopy. I realized that with the skin off the canopy frame sits back about 1/8th inch aft.
Also, all I have left at this point is riveting the center stiffener on and doing the fiberglass fillet in the front of the canopy. I might hold off on this until later as well. The center stiffener is waiting for a defrost fan that I should get in the mail in the next couple days. Its an option that I might go with but will have to check it out when it arrives.. The fan will go under the glare shield and inside the stiffener..
