Brief Description:  Canopy cap strips

Fabricated canopy top strip per plans. Decided to make canopy front edge cap strips also (two halves), not per plans. This will protect front edge of plexi, and more importantly allow me to over countersink the plexi at fron canopy hoop allowing some creep due to differential thermal expansion between the plexi and the steel. Plans call for pulled rivets directly in the plexi along the front edge. Taper of flush head rivets will result on fixed location of plexi at front bow and increased stress. This would provide a hard point mount reducing the ability of the plexi to move and relieve stesses from differential expansion. All other plexi mounting holes can move due to over size drilled hole through plexi. Now, even the front hoop rivets will have this feature.
