well, it appears that I have the same issue--I think. I am at the step of tightening the side rails on the canopy--38-27. So the canopy frame with wind screen installed are on the plane. It appears that the canopy has a slight twist, but I am not sure that it is twist as much as the canopy is too wide by about 2 mm on the passenger side. The canopy latches--not smoothly, but latches. The process of latching pulls the canopy in (2mm) and down (2 mm) on the passenger side so that it is almost parallel with the side of the plane, but still about 1/32" too wide. I understand pulling the canopy down is a twisting problem, but pulling in means that the canopy frame is too wide. The latter is determined when the frame and roll bar are assemble by using C-01442C. The pilot side is just fine and does not move when latching
At this point, there is nothing that I know of that I can do to fix this issue and will probably just have to live with it. I assume that the long term issue is that the plastic part that the pin slides into will wear out on the passenger side and will have to be replaced.
I have a call into van's, so we will see where that leads to.
