    I fitted mine a couple of years back very simply with sikaflex,
    clean and degrease the roof, mark out with masking tape, squeeze a bead of sikaflex around the edge, some people use small spacers to make sure you have a thick bead, I didn't bother just take it steady, key the bottom of the panel and put in place, leave for 24 hours remove masking tape and wire up to a quality MPPT controller,

    Hi Jason, how's the weather in your part of China today? Is Lensun a good company to work for?

    Those Keene sandals walking on the solar panel are superb though. On my second pair, lived in the first pair for almost 2 years. No not like Mother Hubbard, but wearing them most every day. :)

    Nice office carpet! I would suggest Stixall to stick the panel to carpet

    If you shuffle, can you build up static and generate electrikery that way ?

    Are you better off just putting the sikafex only down two opposite sides then air can get under the panel and stop it from over heating.
