Can you post some pics of how you built it.
I love seeing different approaches to making things like canopys.
There is some excellent craftsmanship there

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of anything other than the framework for the canopy body.
I will be sure to take more pictures of the actual construction of our upcoming builds.
Actually, Cliff, I should have more pictures on the facebook.
That's where I post the majority of the pictures that I take. I just started the site a few days ago. I will have a website for ANP within a month or so. Still sorting all of that out, figuring out the best options.

Just found some more.
Here is a CAD drawing of the canopy body frame:
Here it is sitting in my garage at home: (You can also see the aluminum fixture frame I built, too.)
Another shot of the aluminum fixture frame:
The fixture frame itself rode on a nylon runner that we made. If you look at the 72g bowfront canopy that I posted a couple weeks ago, you can see a very similar system.
