Nylon Guide Block
The canopy is centered and guided down with some nylon blocks that are mounted on the roll bar. They required a bit of shaping and drilling. The roll bar didn’t have any pre-located holes, so they were drilled and tapped as well.
Step #6 is omitted at this time, as the canopy is not yet attached to the frame, so it is not possible to verify final fit.
I finished attaching the canopy a few days ago, and verified that there is no interference in the guide blocks. The canopy comes down directly on the outside edge of the fuselage skins, and often needs a push (medial -> lateral) on both sides for it to properly seat with the lips slightly outside of the fuselage. I’ll talk with some experienced builders about that. I may have to reposition the guides or something.
