Roof canvas in place

Although progress is steady because I keep getting distracted with photography the BV is moving forward.
The roof now has canvas and the etched end plates have the rivets pressed out and ready to fit as is the other veranda but that won’t be done until I make the door.

I did wonder if I would need to remove the rainstrips in order to get the canvas to sit down bt a bit of patient smoothing with a bit of spare plastic sprue saw it cover very nicely indeed.
