Default F-652 Mounting Direction

I'm at the point of cutting the corners off of the F-652. Looks doable but one edge has a slight bend. I'm guessing this should be the side that mates against the F-751 Lower Baggage Bulkhead but the instructions and Drawing 29 don't mention it as far as I can tell.

Comments?

Yes. That lip should be the lower edge.

That's the way I cut it ... the bend in on the bottom and faces aft, to help snug up the lower edge of F652 against F751.

Default One More F-652 Question

I saw a note on the drawing that the top of the F-652 needs to be notched for sliding canopies. I went to Drawing 42 as referenced but I can't seem to find any note or dimensions of said notch. Any hints from previous head scratchers?
