There wasn't much time to do airplane work today, so I played around with setting up the gear leg fairings.


Not wanting to start drilling the gear leg fairings, I set the canopy frame in place and took some measurements.





















One thing that could be done quickly, was to install the 1/4 x 20 rod that adjusts the rear canopy rail.  It is in place, but will need some fine adjustment later.


With the canopy frame in place and the rear adjusted roughly where I think it will end up, the positioning of the nylon blocks can be seen.  It looks like the locking fingers will slide right into the right place once the blocks are drilled.  That is, there is no interference with the sides or bottoms of the brackets.
