    Spent a couple hours reworking the stringer standoffs and center support, which will now support the skylight, welded in new locations. Just need a few tabs to secure the rear track for the lexan.

      You probably know this, but those big skylights, like the S-7 has and I guess the BH LSA, has, are great, BUT....it's also nice to have a easy way to block some of the sun off you noggin. In my 7, I have a scrap of the foil bubble foil stuff insulation. Weighs nothing, free. I just put mine up for the summer a couple days ago, and wouldn't you know it as i was flying up a canyon i saw a plane's shadow, not mine, looked up, and couldn't see up! They make fancy pleated blinds, that quickly retract, but the foil stuff pops out pretty quick if needed also. Spring, fall, and winter I love the full skylight.

        Yeah, with my S7 I enjoyed the vis, heat wasn't too bad. But I'm used to that here in Texas (-:

      I purchased these for my skylight. They work great and fit perfectly between the stringers. https://www.amazon.com/kinder-Fluff-...ef_=ast_sto_dp
