A lot of people have asked me to post pictures of my fastback RV-4. So I decided to start a section for my RV.
DR, if this is not appropriate and you would rather have this status under the "RV-4 Status" section, please move accordingly.
I have been working on the fastback portion, canopy frame and canopy all at the same time for the past 3 months. The fastback sheet is not fully trimmed yet. The canopy frame was a standard RV-4 frame that I cut in multiple places, re-welded, modified and banged into shape. The canopy came from Todd and it fits a Rocket. So far it has worked out very well.
Last week I started gluing my canopy to the canopy frame. I used pieces of air hose for the spacers.
The canopy frame was modified to take maximum advantage of the bigger canopy and to improve the field of view. The side tubes were lowered approximately 4 inches. The front bow was cut off and welded to the frame about 6 inches lower. That improoves my forward/side field of view.
