Default canopy skirt to windscreen joint

Hi Andy, looking really good! While you are shooting photos, could you take some about how you did the canopy skirt to the windscreen overlap? Yours looks very smooth from the photos I can see here. Thanks!

I will post more photos this weekend. I will shoot some photos of the canopy frame skirt area then. I am at my day job now. I have transition training this week with the first flight this weekend. Sorry I am not posting more frequently. I am trying to make Oshkosh this year.

First Flight! I was nervous as a cat on a hot tine roof. I didn't want to damage anything
