Trimming the Canopy
Getting Closer to the final fit.
Trimming... I think I've taken the canopy on and off a dozen times or so, trimming a little bit more each time.
Before trimming. Notice the canopy has large plexiglass flanges from the factory mold. They must be trimmed off. * Tip- Before you begin cutting, draw a center line from Front to Back. It will be a huge help. Thanks to Randy Lervold for the tip!
