Alas, I've run out of time to finish this one off. It will get done over Easter.

The canopies in my 1970s Japanese boxing were both undersized and had injection pin marks on them, so they were non staters. Luckily, being undersized meant that they were ideal for vac-forming replacements:

In this photo they are just resting in place. Now I have to get the $%#@ fragile thingies stuck down. Not looking forward to that. But they look good, so I'll find the courage to tackle them.

I really enjoyed my Dinah. Yours looks great and with thin canopies will be that much nicer. Don't worry about the GB...just make sure you finish it and show us all!

That's looking too nice to rush

Take your time and make 'er shine. (Or matte, if you prefer even if it doesn't rhyme as well.) Your vac'ed canopies will be a great improvement. Please show how you attach them--I've never used a vac canopy before.
