Is there any reason to proseal right along there if it cause the canopy seal to stick and bend the canopy skin?
Step 5 is to fill just the relief notches by taping over them and spreading proseal from the inside under the forward skin. The tape keeps the proseal flush with the F-01455 so the canopy skin forward edge can sit flush.
Step 6 has you run a bead of sealant in the gap between the F-01455 and F-01455C’s otherwise water could work its way between them. The problem is when this bead is to thick/wide and rides up onto the F-01455.
