I decided to reconfigure the shop to make it easier to get around the fuselage to move the canopy between the fuselage and the top of the finish kit crate turned work surface. I moved the white plastic drawer unit to the upstairs room since it's mainly being used to store small parts and equipment until I need them and didn't need to take up space in the shop. I moved the wings against the west wall of the garage and moved the finish kit crate next to the fuselage.
I also decided to take a little move material off of the bottom of the front of the canopy because it still wasn't quite touching the roll bar and there were gaps between the canopy windscreen and the forward upper skin I marked where the canopy was contacting the fuselage skin and moved the canopy to the crate to sand the high (low?) spots down with the belt sander. I did this twice but it will probably take a few more iterations to get it just right.
