Build Diary 10-August-05

The replacement canopy top skin arrived yesterday, this evening I have match drilled, dimpled and prepared for priming.

Also tried the crotch strap kit for fit between the ribs, and made the canopy strip - the original one cracked.

This is the crotch strap kit. I have seen some warning on builder sites that suggest the belt is dificult to fit. I may wait for the belts before I fit this.

The replacement canopy skin. Ready for primer. Jo helped out with the dimpling - she knew I had problems dimpling last the original skin.

This is another replacement part. The first one I made developed a crack as I curved it.
