The red line shows where the QB sealant was applied and can potentially (likely, eventually) cause the issue.

Per the manual, there should be no sealant on top of F-01455 aft of F-01471 and no opportunity for the canopy forward edge to grab the sealant.

Edit: In fairness to the QB folks, I didn't have many issues with my QB fuse and wings, they were very well built, only minor issues, I would buy a QB again. However, to have my beautifully painted canopy take a hit like this is a bit heartbreaking and the month of downtime it's going to cause me is frustrating.

Bill,

Can you tell me what drawing number this clip came from?

Thanks, I am trying to steal ideas on how to improve my RV7 TU front seal.
