Today I started work on the canopy roll bar. I originally was
going to paint it before assembly but after checking out a few
builders websites, I elected to built it now, and paint after
it was all together. I started with the rear half, riveting
the splice plates to each half with AN470AD4 rivets. I then
countersunk the same holes in the forward halves and riveted
the forward splice plate.
Here is the forward half with splice plate riveted using AN426
Next I squeezed all of the AN426 rivets to attach the upper
and lower support straps to the forward half of the frame.
Here is the forward half, almost complete. Tomorrow I'm going
to fill the tooling holes with filler so they aren't visable.
