Thank you, Don! Anticipation is half the fun. I feel like I made a big leap with this done.

Want to get this on and move to the wings...

Thanks Jeremy! It wasn't all that bad, but I was on a bit of caffeine.

Default skirt parts

I have a gig starting tomorrow so might be the last post for a little while, and not much of one at that.

Need to cut canopy sides about here:



Skirt brace:

Default skirts

Figuring out the side skirts. I am determined to use aluminum



This side went pretty well, need to trim where the skirt is even with the top of the side skin where you can see the black sharpie




So this side is being a pain in the arse. I will be remaking one or both of the anchor blocks to help with fitment.

Default Done with skirts forward

Got these hammered out save for a bit of fitting which I will do after I get the
anchor blocks done.

The slider is slightly open in the pictures:

Doing my best and steady as fast as possible, thank you!

I was a Dolphins fan for years and have pretty much stuck to college ball
for the last 20 years.

Finally got the canopy trimmed to final size! I think...

Just to 320 currently







Might have sanded a bit beyond what I had intended but not more than 30 thou
