Windshield Frame

Here is a mockup of the windsheild frame. The horizontal string represents the top cowl. The other two strings represent the centerlines of the cross braces. The tricky part about this setup is that the center of the "X" needs to be below the top cowl, which means the "X" needs to have slightly bent legs. (If the legs were straight, they'd intersect above the top cowl.)

Total Time: 3.0 hrs.
