WTB: forward hinged canopy latch system or blue prints

My kit is missing the behind-the-seat canopy latch system, so I am looking for either a set that someone might have available, or the blue prints so I can make a set.

Thanks

Since the latch mechanism locks the torque tube via over center, I found the spring and the hoop obsolete. I am flying without them for 5 years. Saved a 1/4 pound or so. :two:

I ordered the latching system from the new Lancair a year or so ago in order to convert mine. It was crazy expensive and took quite a while for them to build as per their emails they actually hadn't built those parts before.

if you decide to make a part like that, consider making a few extras and selling them here to offset your costs and also to save someone the agony of waiting for a year and a ridiculous invoice. That applies to anything used by Lancair drivers. PM admin for any questions.
