Since today was a nice warm day in the hangar, I started working with the windshield. I took it out of the box, set it in place, and it fit just as it was supposed to. I don’t think it is going to need very much trimming at all. I did spend a while smoothing the edges, just to help prevent cracks in the long run.
I made a few bent pieces of aluminum to add to the boot cowl just aft of the windshield. I learned that on my first exhaust pipe I didn’t leave enough room for the nut when i welded on the flange. I fixed this with the dremel, and on future cylinders I’ll use a little bit less filler metal around the holes. Tabitha’s cousin was in town, so they both came out to work for a little while.
It was nice to have some extra help!
