Slider Parts

The sliding mechanism really consists of 3 contact points. 2 Rollers in the front, and a rear sliding gismo in the rear. Here is the front roller as it meets the forward roll bar. I had to raise the canopy about 3/8" up to get a good fit on the top of the roll bars.


You can just see the sliding gismo in the background for the rear. As the slider comes back, it raises up to clear the fuse, and drops down as it slides back. Pretty neat trick.

Finally there is a "catch" mechanism made out of plastic that locks the canopy down in the rear, to the longeron. This is a tricky drilling feat as the entrance angles are funky. I have no advise really , only to take your time and use a drill press.
