Page 38-13, Step 10: Slide the C-01411 Canopy Rail Shim between the C-01406-L Forward Canopy Rail and the Left Canopy Rail Assembly, then cleco into place as shown in Figure 3.
Can anyone clarify this for me? It reads like it goes in between the parts but simply really doesn't fit so assuming I'm interpreting it wrong.

It looks like it won't fit but it does. Take out all clecos in the area and spread the parts a little. Just try to get one end of the shim in and slide it up to the forward end and then push the rest of it down into the gap. The hardest part is getting the holes lined up with the other two parts. The top and back edges of the shim should be flush with adjacent parts.
