Fitting aft canopy bow

Time to layout and drill the aft canopy bow to the side angle at the aft end of the side rails.

Laid ou the holes and drilled to #40. These will be drilled to #30 later. Note, my drill spacing is somewhat different than what Van's specified because the aft canopy bow is about 1/4" narrower to accomodate SikaFlex adhesive for attaching the canopy.

I temporarily clamped the skin on the side rails to ensure the whole frame was correctly positioned in the left-right direction... that I could repeat the process on the right side.

Nice transition between side rail skins and turtledeck skin. :-)
