Build Diary 22-June-05

Continued work on the canopy - Fitted canopy side rails.

Smoothing ridges from the top and bottom of the canopy side rail angle.
Marking the rivet and rear catch positions.
I first drilled #40 in the angle, then attached to the rear hoop. I will then match drill them together to #30 for AD4 rivets
The side rail to front section canopy attachment plate. After checking alignment I attached it ro the side rail first, as it must sit snug the the bottom of the rail.
