Brief Description:  More canopy work

Drilled out the temporary rivets holding the canopy bubble to the frame

Scuffed cleaned and painted the canopy frame

Drilled out the rivet holes in the canopy bubble to 1/4 inch for the fuel tubing bushings. After I drilled out the ones for the canopy front bow I realized that I wasn't planning to open them up since there's nothing on the outside that would prevent the rivets from pulling in to the 1/4 inch hole. I'll have to make a layup in that area which will have countersunk holes providing a clamping surface. The front windscreen layup will have to be modified accordingly. No big deal. It might even look cleaner when the canopy is open.
