Looks good man 8-)
Do you have a long term fixing solution to your solar panel?

I see you are using photo bucket - they may disable your image links if you post a few more images... unless you have a paid subscription
If you're going through hell, keep going.

That’s a cracking idea with the solar panel! How many Watts and how are you finding it?
I just purchased a solar blanket, but might sell it. Just one less thing to setup/pack up

That is the long term solution haha, it’s also fairly removable. It’s sikaflexed on top of some vinyl and black gaffa tape around the edges to finish it and stop wind getting under.

Yeah it’s been a while, what other sites could I use for free image links?

Yeah it’s sleek and you can’t see it if your not looking from above. It’s only 100w, works well even in low light conditions. Haven’t checked amps but my redarc1225d is able to turn on boost and float. That’s with a 35L waeco fridge running 24/7
If you’ve already got the solar blanket then keep it mate, the Flexi mono panels are good for most conditions but a blanket has smaller cells and works really well in overcast or low light.
Plus the Flexi solar panel is only $149 from vicOffroad

Since you already are using Tapatalk, upload the photos through the app =)
I also used photobucket before and it was a P.I.T.A to update the photos on old build threads...

How do find the awning on the back of the hardlid goes? I also have a roof rack bolted to my hardlid and thought about putting an awning on it. I just wasn't sure if the hardlid would stay up. Turns out that with the extra weight of the alloy roof rack it doesn't stay up anyway! Any problems you've encounter or anything you would do different?

I measured the struts and bought stronger ones from autobarn to suit. It lifts 2 snowboards and holder, awning and my 20kg tent easily when it’s warm, in the cold it struggles but stays up when I take the tent off. Could just get stronger struts to solve that problem.
