My friend Jim asked if I would mind modifying his canopy slide rail cap. Once again the cap is there so it can be removed in case you want to remove the canopy then the cap can be removed in order to allow the rear slide block to be easily removed from the slide area. If you don't have a removable cap you either have to cut the rail shorter or remove the fairing on the tail to hopefully get the block to slide off the rail.
Anyway...I got his rail in the mail and after a couple hours in the shop had the modification complete. I am going to hold on to the rail because we spoke and thought it would be a good idea to get the rail hard anodized.....so when I get mine complete we will send them out to plating as I also have a number of other parts to get anodized as well.
For now...the canopy slide rail is ready to send for plating.
