2.5 hrs
Misc. canopy and cowling work.

Deburr roller brackets, prime.
Start fitting canopy latch. Start cutting canopy handle bushing to length. Did this with the canopy off the fuselage, and used a hacksaw for the initial cut, then a file for fine tuning.

This would be much easier before the canopy is installed, but the final height dimension may not be known at that time.

Trim aft edges of cowling, and upper edges.

Begin marking for roll bar handles.
