That is a serious solar panel. It must put out 5 or10 amps on a sunny day. If your car uses 10 amps to run , lets say your panel is putting out 6 amps, your battery would only have to carry 4 amps. 4 amps an hour is not going to drain the battery. I have complete faith in your Solar charging system. Adding some high output led spot lights flush to the grill block would be a nice feature. One that i plan on doing to my Beetle. Its headlights are weak and suck amps.
