How To Build A Solar Panel – Part 10

Watch in HD I, Robert Smith, show you every step I take to building a custom made solar panel from scratch. I explain in detail about each item I use and why to use it, so the video is fairly long.

It will take time to edit the video, but the more of you that subscribe to the video, the faster I’ll try to get it out to you guys as it just shows that people are interested and …

    Hey maltikburi2,

    Thanks for the comment, anyway to your question, different paints have different quality and the length of time that it will last before you need to add a new coat to it will vary.

    The sun plays a factor into paint fading off materials in time. Just think of a car. Cars will eventually need a new paint job, but to help make the paint job last longer it’s recommended you keep your car waxed.

    I am planning on making my first panel soon and fortunately or unfortunately I will never know how many mistakes you saved me from making 😉
