Default RE: 4*40 Canopy

Here's a picture of my 4*40. This was my first plane and I just used my imagination. I too hated the way the stock canopy looked. So I just started cutting the canopy a little at a time until I got the shape I wanted. I left he back of the canopy as is while i cut the front down to achieve the desired height and they trim the sides and back to get the lines parallel with the fuse and the deck. It's not quite as low profile as the one in this website but it suited me at the time. I may even take it off and shave it down some more now that I have a little more experience with building. I used black RIT dye to tint it also.
I know that isn't a lot of helpful stuff but you truly just need to use your imagination and shape it the way you want it. If you have any specific questions I would be happy to answer what I can.
