There is large amounts of information and advice on this forum with regards to fitting a solar panel if you search. For example even though IanH has a different MH to yours this might help:

I purchased and fitted my SP on my Kemerton some time ago and similar to many others used this firm:

Hello everyone!  Been very late in implementing this work.

Mike187 - how do we get into this casement?  Just a screwdriver?  Looks to be exactly the same for Malvern as for the Broadway.  Picture below.  Hoping that Sargent wiring is 4mm and will fit OK.

I think we are going to go for the semi-flexible solar to save the weight.  Photonic Universe said they could spec everything we need back in January.

Yes it is standard electrical trunking that the top clips into the base and you need to pop it off with a screwdriver. 
Can't confirm the exact gauge of the Sargent wire but it was certainly a lot thicker than the wires on the originally fitted 100 watt panel.

I hope everything goes well your fitting.

Mike

Well... we’ve been a long time! Finally we’ve had decent weather... but finished during cloudy weather!
