After much deliberation, I have decided that I am in good shape overall.

I just needed to settle down and realize that this portion of the build is a bit more involved and needs extra attention to the small details. I can tweak this one step at a time.

As my buddy always says: "One crisis at a time Kent"

Going to get at the first wing I think and revisit the windscreen just a bit down the road.

Changed my mind again...
Going to get the windscreen at least cut to size and set up on the fuse.

More of the mass amounts of filler removed and top skin all clean








Just about ready to get going tonight have a location to scout in an hour so off I go.

Getting the new roll bar set











Almost home on this darn thing. I cut another new set of anchor blocks to get them spot on. They are cheap and I have an adjustable jig set up so it is pretty fast.
My slider canopy is a bit low even with the spacers compared to the windscreen so a little fudging will take place I guess...

I am calling the roll bar/canopy interface done.

Finally...





I didn't get a shot from the other direction but they are parallel if not a bit more
clearance between.

Default Grips

Got my grips in process





They are foregrips from my Steyr AUG clone project from many years back. I have like 125 of them left over so I thought I would put a few to good use.

Default mount

Got the mount on:





Went in nice and the center two bolt locations came in flush with the firewall so no need for spacers there!
