If you look at the picture in Permalink #18, the pivot point is inset from the deployed position. You can't avoid a small inset, but more might be better to position the panel. The downside is the stored position isn't as compact.

On the aluminum frame, consider two hinges; one would have to resist torquing. Have you dimensioned the panels? The top panel looks long to store correctly.
