Yesterday I spent a few hours working on the canopy frame components.
I started by cutting the plastic bushing blocks for the canopy frame hinges.
I then fit the blocks into the sub panel. Then installed the top skin
I then got the canopy frame out and prepped it by drawing a line down the center tube of the frame.
This is used to align the frame skin for drilling into the tube.
Here’s the skin clecoed onto the frame at the forward end. I will drill the remaining holes through the skin into the frame.
Next up is to fit the frame and hinges to the sub panel and bushing blocks, then align everything and drill the hinges.
