Xof1 Photo Artifacts 8: Xof1 array encapsulation prep

The solar car's array needs to be encapsulated in a near optically clear resin coating. Here the car is at a body shop in the beaches one saturday morning. Marcelo and an auto body technician are masking the array. This was a nail biting day since all the months invested in building the array and wiring all 900 cells together will be entombed in plastic, and will hopefully work afterwards.
