Aft windows.



To give more visibility we made 2 windows just after de roll-bar. This will save some weight and give extra
stiffness to the roll bar.

Plan is to have a small part of the window post in 4 layers cf. The first very small layer.

Whole window has layer 2 and lower side there is already layer 3.

And finally 3 layers.

Cut the hole in it, shape down the foam till the CF from the outside is present. And putting one layer (the 4th)
to connect the outside with the inside.

The window frame will also give a very good support to the roll bar to prevent braking out off the aft side.

Finished, waiting for the acrylic material.
We have tried to buy the material in holland but we had no luck, we want to have the same collar as the
canopy and only 2 mm thick. Finally we decided to contact the company who delivers the dragonfly canopy.
They had the material. We ordered 4 small windows.

Special thanks to Plony she picked it up in the states for us.

And glued them in after we cut it into the right size.

And finally we put one layer of CF over it.
