1 hr for Tuesday
Finally brought the canopy bubble down from it's storage place. It sure took up a lot of room. With Lynne's help, got it downstairs, marked the centerline, and positioned it on the plane for the first time. Used masking tape to mark the first cut lines for removing extra material.

Also marked the lower cowl for cutting the gear leg slot. If I'm going to be cutting with the die grinder, I wanted to get both of these tasks done.

For Monday, July 26
1 hr
Started looking at building the alternator cable and finishing the main power feed. But didn't have the terminals needed. So a long delayed order went off to AC Spruce for a bunch of various hardware bits.
Then installed the forward top skin and reinstalled the canopy frame parts. Now ready to work with the plexiglass canopy!
