    Straight from the manufacturers website. What would be interesting is if the correct grade of sikaflex was used (or even if it was Sikaflex 252) and it was installed to the manufacturer's guidelines and instructions. I have used Sikaflex grades under some wicked applications, but to be honest, am a bit gun-shy on the solar panel stuck to roof config., but the manufacturer and others say its fine. My panels are bolted into a frame and then bolted to the roofrack. 50,000klm and still there!

    Must've washed and waxed the car before using the wrong adhesive.

    I hear ya mate. I know they use it on caravans, motor homes etc... And for sure they use very specific rigid stuff and methods, very low profile panels for aerodynamic etc. But personally, I don't care what type of goo is used, I would not trust it. Thats just me. A little tear in the glue somewhere and wind under speed gets under it and off she goes. No bloody way, I'd ever do that. Good ol' nuts 'n bolts all day long.

    Just to clarify the incident I mentioned above was a home made job at best... It all happened quick, but to me it looked like they took 1 half of those fold out panels and just stuck it on top of their patrol.
    I reckon the cable it was attached to anchored it down somewhat when it took off. Someone could've been wearing it through their windscreen for sure.

    With any luck the insurance gives him the finger because of it and he gets to bear the full cost of damage to the other cars.

    They should be lifted off the surface if for no other reason than the cells become less efficient as they get hot. Having them elevated allows air to flow under the panel which provides some cooling.

    Air flow under the panel will make bugger all difference to its efficiency. This is why flexible solar panels are glued to boat and car roofs too. But that does not make me angry… trying to removie stuff that has been stuck on with even humble dowsil silastic 732 really annoys me ������

    Doesn’t mean people use the right adhesive. Or prepare the surface correctly.

    Ghee that is average. I saw your post last week and grabbed an XP13 for the Y62. I also grabbed some extra 12mm rope too.

    It arrived today strapped to its own Pallet wrapped in Black

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    I guess it depends on who is preparing the parcel for delivery at the time... Same goes at my work, I have two guys who pack orders, both pack orders at different levels, one who doesn't give a rats, and one who doesn't give a fark! You get what you pay for I suppose...

    The only good thing for me was I ordered on Tuesday morning and it was delivered on Thursday from NSW.
    My order did say
    Our delivery partner has estimated that your order will arrive within 12 - 24 business days.
    And I was alright with that.
