I used VHB 4959 120mil to bond anodized aluminum 8020 extrusions to the Escape gel coat. The 120mil thickness was used due to not having a perfectly flat and true surface on the Escape roof. Generally you want to utilize the thinest VHB that is practical/viable.

I tried to link the 3M webpage for the 100+ page PDF "3m Adhesive and Tape Solutions Design Guide", however the 3M site appears to be down right now...but try to find the document for detailed application overview of their tapes and adhesives including all things VHB.

FYI HappyCampers retired from 3M after 38 years. He has some great insight and I bet he would help if asked a technical question regarding VHB application.

Very nice solar job and plenty of battery capacity! My wife and I are primarily boondockers and also fish the Eastern Sierras, primarily creeks and rivers, not often enough.

Camped out the last few days apart of throwing flies for Lahontan Cutthroats and the new slide out solar panels are kicking it!

While I’m loving the pictures and mods to your 15A, I’m even more impressed with the beautiful Lahontan cutthroat trout on your profile picture. Wonderful fish!!
