1. Canopy Hinge 2/13/05   .5 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.)
2. Canopy Hinge 2/19/05 9.08 .5 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).
