Rear canopy latch rollers

While getting ready to fit and drill the rear canopy latch rollers, I noticed that I hadn't touched up the paint where I had removed a tab from this latch arm.

Fortunately, I had purchased some touch up paint from Van's long ago. I've kept this in the freezer to prevent it from hardening up over time.

With the roll bar removed, I've positioned the left side canopy latch roller. This was not trivial to position this thing. I worked hard at ensuring it was vertical and centered in the slot.

Reinstalled the latch bar and linkage to use for positioning the latch roller.

Latch roller well centered.

Vertical position looks good and feels good when actuating the canopy latch handle.
