Drawing plans up for my solar array. I'm planning to use 6 panels fastened to rails that can be tilted toward the sun. i also want to raise my roof 12", and make an arrangement of ribs fastened to the bus at the window frames /body ribs. The ribs will do double duty. Help support the roof raise then support the solar array when done. I'm thinking of using aluminum in the construction. First fasten couple pieces of channel on the outside of the body ribs to hold square tube, a square tube goes from the bottom of the windows up 4' where it meets with a cross member.
Is the aluminum from Home Depot, Princess Auto (our Harbor Fright) a good candidate for this type of construction? I think it is 6063P alloy.
thanks for your input
