Nice list. I picked up a SunGoldPower solar kit. Comes with controller. Been watching the Hobotech guy on YouTube. He does a lot of legitimate reviews on this stuff and the solar generators. Love the folding mobile units. Can get moved from rig to rig.

Progress what a great and celebrated 4th, hope you enjoyed the key date.

Can you believe it, I actually have made some progress, spent most of Sat/Sun prepping and sealing the box with sandpaper, cleaning and Sikaflex 221. It was a cooker..

Still not 100% sealed, ran out of Sikaflex, that is a sheet tone of rivet heads to seal in 90 degree weather

Get Elastrometric roof coating. there is various brands that sell it..... some you can put a light tint to it. Folk even coat their high quality tarp garages with the stuff and it turns a 2 year tarp into a 15yr tarp.
So instead of individual application (each rivet head), you paint/coat the whole surface, is that the idea?

Some more progress, I am finally addressing the butchery to the cable interface panels. Rebuilding them to match original pivot tilt outs

Here is current, and what it looked like when I picked it up and a deployed unit as it sat in the 60's
