Cozy Mark IV : Time and Expenses
Chapter 18: Canopy & turtleback
In this chapter you will build a form for the turtleback, build the
turtleback and bulkheads, install windows in the turtleback, fit the canopy,
build the canopy frame and fuselage top forward to bulkhead F28, and install
the hinges, latches, locks and cockpit vents.
||Cut out the 10" canopy hinges
and floxed in place on the upper longeron (after carefully checking
their alignment. (I'm actually in chapter 8 right now, you do this
part before installing the shoulder support for headrests.)
||Got the needed hardware from
AS&S (various nuts, washers & bolts) to finish the install of the
hinges. Drilled the necessary holes through the hinges &
longerons, installed the bolts, washers & nuts (plus I used a bit of
blue thread locker).
