Yes, I have this canopy and yes, it comes in one piece.
Sorry to say this but this canopy is of a very poor quality!
I was amazed to find out that Align makes and sells this product of such quality & finish!
I addressed the shop which I got the canopy from and after checking the entire stock, he told me that all the stock got these defects and he planes to ship it back to Align for a refund.
If you are femiliar with air brushing and have good artist hands, i'm sure you will be able to make somthing nice out of it but the canopy out of the box is a mess.
Here are a few pics of my canopy after a friend of mine took care of it...

Like Divebudd said, one piece and not very good quality for what your paying for!
For the price, I'd rather buy 2 regular Glass canopy's instead!
and one more thing "DON'T BE AFRAID!"

Showstopper my friend,
I got my canopy after consulting you, I know you are very happy with it.
Maybe Align has more than one factory around the world that makes these canopys and you got yours from the US one which is ISO9002 approved...

Wow, that's amusing 9002 approved, so they documentented the flaws along the way...
There is no way they would make these anywhere else but outside the US, there is no way they would pay what it would take in US labor to make these.
That being said, although mine had a minor flaw or two, it's the best canopy I've had for the Rex. Fit's great, no trimming, clears all the links, took paint really well too.
