Canopy Frame Continued
Today I finally decided I got the fit of the canopy frame good enough to continue drilling everything out. First I drilled the hole pattern into the splice plate, then drilled the splice plate w/ a #40 to the canopy frame ribs. These will eventually get drilled out to #30's.
I then drilled the remaining holes in the canopy frame. It stiffened up quite a bit after clecoing it together.
Then I removed the skin, removed the aluminum shavings (and the blue vinyl) and reclecoed it back onto the frame, then put the frame back on to the fuselage.
