No sweat! The canopy is near and dear to me right now. Mine had, at some time in its life, gotten slammed shut by prop blast or wind and the frame was broken at a corner weld. I made some temporary fixes, but am about to replace the entire assembly. I've looked hard at the pivots, and am pretty confident that they aren't going to be a source of problems. Those are, as I mentioned, AN4 bolts, and are bolted to some aluminum angle inboard of the sheet metal. Pretty stout.
