RV8 SikaFlex Question
For those RV8 Builders who have used SikaFlex to attach your canopy:
Question, reviewing the plans (DWG44 Section A-A) this shows the plexiglass cut "even" with the bottom of the canopy frame. For those who have used Sika, did you cut your canopy plexiglass per the plans (even with the bottom of the frame), OR did you cut your glass a little lower "below" the bottom of the frame to allow the Sika to have more surface area to support/hold?
I've cut my canopy per the plans, (it is even with the bottom of the frame),
I'm second guessing myself and wondering, should I have cut the plexiglass lower (below the frame) so as to allow more area for symmetrical Sika filets on the upper and lower surfaces of the canopy frame?
Thank you in advance for sharing your experience and insight to my questions!
