    Great work, i am learning about building solar panel and wanted something lighter than commonly used. I live full time in my 30' trailer and volunteer as a host. Some parks are totally off gird and since i am on disablility, my funds are limited. So i bought some small (52mm x 39mm) cells to learn with. They are kits with cells, buss wire, tabbing wire and flux pens. I am always trying to go as light as possible. Thank you for explaining the wiring for voltage. I understand series vs paralellel. As well as diodes etc. I build guitars as a hobby so solder alot. I just havent use fiberglass much, is there any other material I could use instead? 100% silicone maybe? I have to stay away for vocs because of my disease. (They give me siezures) i have used silicone before and don't have proble...see more »Great work, i am learning about building solar panel and wanted something lighter than commonly used.

(They give me siezures) i have used silicone before and don't have problems from that. Using the light diffuser panels is a great idea. I just have to be careful of chemicals.Thanks for the great instructable.
