Slide in frame for two solar panels so my exterminator 2 feeder lights stay charged.



Backside view of switches, usb plug , 12 volt cigarette lighter socket, extra support for mounting 2-Sniper hog light control boxes.







1st switch is for red interior under window lighting
2nd switch is for white interior lights on ceiling.



Up and running.



12 volts for phone charger n stuff.

Round does very well in the wind, years ago (late 80's) we built some round tower gun blinds (should have patent it). We never did guide wire them down, never blew over, while other square blind we was picking them up even when they was tied down. Round is a better shape in every way except building them.

It actually reflects the heat very well and sort of looks like the sky's reflection so no paint scheduled.
