I also made the front part of the canopy removable for easy access.
how I did the front pins, is that I drilled in place and then I tack it with CA before using epoxy.

For my exhaust: Iím using the custom servo operated unit, for it to fit in place you must drill and then slice with a Dremel diamond blade the back part of itíll be just a little bit flexible or else it will not go in to place.
Check the pictures.
