    2.beans. Thanks for sharing your evolving experience. I'm learning a lot serendipitously through your trials and errors. Wallyworld, thanks for the continued input. This is good feedback.

    instead of wisbo plates I am thinking of trying corrigated roofing panels. I started an experimate using a 2x2 piece of roofing a piece of plywood and 4 - 3' pipes. the roofing really holds the pipe down tight. I painted it black and set it out in the sun. I have a meter with a tempator prope, the outside tempator was 71 within minutes the inside of the pipe tempature rose to 82. I guess its time to start building.

    I am trying the 26" galvinized roofing , when I figure out how to post pitchures I will do it. Basically I am going to build it the same way everyone else is doing with the wisbo plates . I am just trying to make one with as much materials I have laying around.
