Windscreen Fairing

8 hrs
Today marks the last of the major construction work. Used 8 oz. BID Rutan Fiberglass cloth and West Systems Epoxy (105 resin and 206 slow hardener), just like most of the other work. Didn't use any carbon fiber.
After a slight tussle, got the canopy open.
Trimmed the canopy latch handle to avoid tearing up the fairing when the latch handle is pointing forward.

After the finish work is done on the fairing, it's time to get ready to move to the airport!

Spent an hour the past two nights getting ready for the fairing work.
