Finish fitting the canopy latch. For a seemingly simple task, this has consumed a lot of time.

Trimmed the latch to try to get a better fit when closed. But might have trimmed too much. May have to order another latch. Fortunately that part doesn't have too much time invested in it.
Drilled and tapped latch handle. Countersunk for 509 screw.

Drilled the handle and latch for retainer spring.
