Brief Description:  Canopy skirts part 3

Fabricated drill templates for the holes on the canopy frame vertical ribs

Continued drilling the holes in the LH skirt working from the front to the back. After drilling the holes for the LH aft vertical rib and clecoing the skirt in place I noticed that the "knee" at the top of the skirt had shifted and didn't nest in the corresponding "knee" where the canopy bubble meets the frame. Removed all of the clecos except three in the forward most rib and readjusted the skirt to fit better. Drilled an 1/8 hole in the top flange of the skirt and inserted a cleco to lock the skirt in place. All of my holes were now mislocated. The beauty of composites is you can fill the holes and try again so that's what I'll have to do.
