Tell me this isn’t hot. Linchpins are sexy.

Some modness pron I found around the Internet.  It’s a Marine solar panel stand.

No idea if the casting/material is any good.  Don’t own one but it just looks great.  Found it while searching for a mounting, adjustment and vibration isolation system for solar panels mounted on a van.  Too tall BTW.  Looks like I’m building my own.

That’s coming…

Originally I was looking at these panels from power film.  They are awesome but… not so much on my van.  Giant ribs (no not the Ford ones) on the roof.  But that’s another story.

Powerfilm panels are way higher real world wattage than they seem.  They have a refractive surface so angle?  No problem.

Oh and you can ventilate them and they still work.
