Plant Vehicle Motor vehicle Automotive tire Hood

So I took off my wet box and now looking to fill this hole. Would really like to put a small solar panel to keep the battery topped off and offset some drainage from fridge use. Did Nissan make a flat panel for here and does anybody have one they need to get rid of. TIA

Model X has a panel instead of basket, I saw one recently for $60 locally vs $85 for the basket on Ebay.
Basket lets you change the angle, store something inside. Model X panel has the same width.
Just installing the solar panel would be nicer with a swinging basket gate.

true about angling the solar panel but I took the basket off because I couldnt clean under it and it was holding a lot of leaves and rust inducing material. With a flat panel, I can reach under it to scoop out the junk.

1/8” piece of plexiglass or lexan would work.
you may need to double it up or add a support at the back edge though.
