Thanks to John for his sharing of the installation of Lensun 35W customized flexible solar panel for 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. We developed two specs for this model, including the 35W and the 50W. He installed the 35W and tests it first.
50W panel is made with soft TPT backsheet, it fits nicely where the Hood bends which available at: https://www.lensunsolar.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=484&search=Jeep+Gladiator
The following is John’s description of his installation.
- I prefer to remove the specifications sticker from the panel in order to have a fully clean slate.
- Next, I wipe the back of the panel with an alcohol pad before installing the 3M VHB tape.
- I then apply a generous amount of 3M VHB tape. This step is completely subjective to the user on the amount of adhesive to use. I would always recommend to error on the side of more tape. I like to use a double strip of tape at the leading hood edge to ensure the front of the panel doesn’t lift off at highway speeds.
- Perform a test fit of the panel on the vehicle using painter tape to finalize the placement before you stick it down. You only get one shot at this and sometimes it’s better to have an extra set of hands if the panel is too large/bulky to line up by yourself.
- Peel off the double-sided tape and lay it down for good. Press along the edges and center of the panel to ensure all the tape is contacting the surface of the hood. Continue to press and rub your hands over the entire surface of the panel to promote adhesion. Pay special attention to the corners and sides of the panel as you don’t want those to lift. Find whatever you can to gently weigh down the panel for a few hours (or overnight to fully cure).
