Now that I can roll the fuselage outside the garage I decided to work on the canopy. I mounted the canopy frame on the fuselage and then carefully centered the canopy on the frame.
I needed to add some pull rivets and washers to pull the canopy down to the deck.
I cut out slight depressions in the plexiglass where the rivet/shims attached so the fiberglass layout would go over them smoothly.
