Looks good so far.
Cancelled our trip to Idyllwild this weekend as our neighbors bailed on us and I would be thinking only about finishing the solar. HopHed, my StickyFeet came with nuts and bolts to fasten them to the panels. Also my panels had pre-drilled holes for the mounts. They were obviously made for the Renogy mounts as the StickyFeet are set back slightly.
I placed one panel on the roof for a few minutes while I cut up wood 2x4's to raise the panels. When I came back, the 3M VHB tape was gooey because of the warm roof. Hope I didn't ruin them! It was only one panel and only 4 mounts as I hadn't attached the center ones yet. I moved the tape back and as it cooled, it looked normal again. Dumb move on my part.
I think I know where I will mount these two panels and need to go to the hardware store for fine grit sandpaper and a few screws. Also, I need to get some adhesive caulk. Not sure if I should try CW or my dealer for that.
