Not much opportunity to work on it today. Plus, extremely humid, and the june bugs were just ridiculous. I spent more time swatting at bugs than working on the part.
Clamped one length of canopy side rail to the latch handle assembly. Spaced with 1/16"" nylon washers as per plans, then drilled two 11/64th"" holes for the bolts that limit slide travel, and two 3/32"" holes that will be used to ensure the canopy is positioned and locked during flight.
