Started Canopy Trimming (Canopy)
3.5 Hours

Previous - Index - Next

The weather has improved outside, so I decided to tackle the canopy again today. I started by positioning the F-631-A channels. This turned out to be a huge pain. I don't know what happened between when I drilled these and now, but it took forever to get them back into the proper alignment. I did finally get there, however.

I masked off a bunch of the surfaces that the plexiglass will rest against when I'm fitting it.

I made a centerline on the F-631 roll bar.

I had been warming the garage up with my new heater into the mid 80's. It got really warm--which is good for preventing plexiglass cracks.

Then Emily helped me carry the plexiglass from the basement to the shop.

I marked a centerline as called out in the plans.

Then I started trimming the excess flanges. I practiced here on the aft end getting a really straight line. It went well.

I trimmed the left side and the front.

Then my grinder gave up. Need to go get a new one tomorrow...
