Showing all four completed panels. Shows how much better the one I made with the foam oven turned out than the ones I used heat lamps on. There is better control with the oven and less chance of causing bubbles from overheating a spot like with the heat lamps. I used a 500 degree heat gun for the heat source and foam board for the oven. there is another video on that. I goofed up with the last panel and forgot to invert every other row but was able to fix it by running buss wire on the back side from top to bottom on each row. Then I covered the buss wire with some extra tedlar I had left . I just siliconed it over the buss wire. I had a hard time pulling the tedlar back at the ends to re wire . I had to use a heat gun and it still pulled apart really hard. That 3 rd panel is the one that the silicone reacted with the EVA . It's still runny at the edges. I forgot to mention that I made the tracker frame 5 ft longer and widened the gap between the panels to eliminate shadowing.
