Default Canopy Fairing and Sika


I still need to build the fiberglass fairing for my RV7 (tipper) canopy. The canopy is bonded with Sika and there is a bead along the front curve, where the fiberglass transition fairing will be added. Any issues laying fiberglass over the Sika? I could remove most of it in that area if it's better. Also, does everyone add the small metal clips along the bottom of the forward canopy that get buried into the fiberglass fairing? I'd rather not.

Thanks for any help!
