    Nice, Obi! Any shading issues with the PA horn? How did you secure to hardtop? I'll bet that helps the batteries a lot.

      Yeah, the horn and my 2 Shakespeare antennas sometimes cast a shadow on one of the panels depending on the suns direction but it still is able to a minimum of 2 amperes of current charge to the battery.

      They are semi - flex panels so I caulked them fast to the hardtop with marine grade silicone
