My buddy Robert's Rotary-powered 914. Crashed it on Glendora Mountain Road ... OUCH. 

Almost a shear cliff over the edge there ... them big boulders totaled the car, but saved his bacon! First test of the solar water heater with the new design collector. I used 40 feet of 1/2" ID black vinyl pond hose coiled inside. 12v, 6800mAh LiPo battery pack for the KX3 KHOCKING KIRK WJW smaller pic ... and here's the PV panel mounted. I'll buy a 10' stick of 1.1/2" EMT to get it a little higher up in the air (my wife has bumped her head on this twice so far). My old '80 Cheby LUV 4x4 (2.0L) Thought this looked like Gary WJW(2) Solar Water Heater

This was my first attempt at constructing a solar water heater system.

The system consists of a 55 gal. tank, a 24vDC SHURflo 3.0 gal/min pump and a 200-watt, 24-volt mono-crystalline PV panel. The Pump draws 3.5 Amps, the PV outp Firewood and target backers for Cuddeback 2013 Cuddeback 2013:

I hope somebody took pix of version 1.2, but I heard that Saturday night's campfire cooked it. I wanted a tilt-able/rotatable pole mount for the solar water heater's 24 volt PV panel, so I used some scrap aluminum and the mount from an old DSS dish to fabricate this: Beauty and the Beast 9/22/84 My 'Man Cave' (2012) ... it looks worse now (no elbow room) :( Two target backers so far (30" x 34") for Cuddeback 2013 Cuddeback 2013:
