Brief Description:  Final mating of canopy to frame 2

I started bolting the canopy to the frame at the top of the roll bar. I put in the screws and turned the nuts on only a little bit. After I had a few screws in I tightened the nuts only enough to make the canopy hit the frame. I did not really tighten, nor torque these. Other builders tell me you can crack the canopy by over tightening these bolts. For now I'll just make them tight enough to pull the canopy against the metal frame. The nyloc nuts will hold and won't back off even if not tightened.
