Tip Up Canopy Latch
I am getting ready to install the canopy latch mechanism and saw an RV-7A that did not have the latch handle protruding through the slot in the side of the fuselage. It just had a key lock in the canopy skirt that had a hook to hold it latched down to the canopy deck when in the locked position. Has anyone out there modified the side handle latch handle so that it does not require the slots being cut in the side of the fuselage? If so, I'd like to see pics of how you did it.
