Thanks Jake! By the way, cool to see you featured in Sport Aviation.

The bottom hinge hides under the motor mount. We flush riveted a piece of flashing to the hinge, and drilled it to the cowl. This was with the canopy on, and the hinge/flashing pinned to the fuselage. Then we removed it and drilled the holes.

Time to hack off the canopy bottom:

Here we have a waxed piece of flashing taped and clamped onto the edge. Next session we will do a wet layup to extend the edge we overtrimmed.

We trimmed the new glass and it is better. Here is my tooling to transfer the Southco holes to the cowl. If I was smart I would have left them as pilot holes and installed the Southcos later.

Southcos snapped in. I still need to figure out the spring and rubber washer thing. Image

Countersink the fiberglass. Place spring onto southco fastener. Insert through countersunk hole. Attach the retaining washer to the backside of fastener.

Thanks Ryan! My Southcos are not flush, just low profile.

I'm telling you what ... if you guys keep it up you are gonna run out of things to do, except fly it!

Very cool to watch your airplane come together as a family project over the years. Thanks!
