I haven't looked at the blog or pics so I might be missing the point so to speak but could you use polyurethane to seal the panels without using a plexiglass cover? I'm thinking of the two bottle mix that you pour on and brush out, commonly use over wood in bars. It dries clear and I suspect would preserve the panels from the elements forever, no idea as to it's transparency in the sun as most bars are in the dark. - Dale
