I am finishing up the primer coats on the fabric before the final paint spray stage. I keep jumping back over to the canopy to finish up some glass work around the canopy frame, but it's never-ending and kicking my ass! From start to finish, I bet I have 600 hours total in messing with a canopy option. It is sobering to think, one can build some quick-build airplane kits in the time it has taken me to get to the end of this canopy thing.... I know a local guy who is a hired gun for RV builders - he makes a semi-living by doing the 'hard parts' of an RV build, firewall forward and canopies. He once said he charges ballpark around 5K to install a canopy complete. I thought that sounded high at the time, but now I see why...... Anyone care to comment on how long it took them to do their canopy?
