lol  I agree . . . Free power is free power.  I just wanted to know if there
was a real reason NOT to do this!

Casking Resin huh?  Where might I find such a thing.  What is it?  What will
it do for the panels?

Casting resin is used for things like gearshift knobs and ornaments etc.

Clear resin will cause a small % drop in efficiency but who cares at the
price of the panels.

Try the yellow pages or your nearest surfboard maker for the name of his
resin supplier.

Mix the two parts (enough to fill frame to level of frame) pour in and
let set. Panel now sealed.

Should you use broken panels? Never, send them to me and buy new ones
for your use.

Acrylic casting resin can be gotten at "Hobby" stores.

It will seal the cracks in the glass so water can't
get in.

A secondary function is to help stiffen the surface.
An interesting method to improve the stiffness is to
imbed a fine wire screen, something like chicken wire
but with finer wire. I don't have a source for anymore
though.

This is to support for the panel with cast resin from behind ?  Do you
do anything to protect the front ?


Cheers, J/.

No, clear casting resin on the front to the thickness of the frame.
