Build Diary 17-August-05

This evening refitted the canopy skin. Jo came out and helped rivet the rollbar brace. Also riveted and checked the canopy release.

I have already painted parts of the canopy with top coat, as this will be very hard to get the final finish in all the gaps. Especially without runs.
With the canopy brace parts in place this area would be really hard to paint. So I have painted it before completing the construction.
