Attaching Junction Box question

I just got a Unisolar solar panel. The panel has no adhesive or wires.
I also got a junction box and found a diode (I believe) that goes in the junction box.

From what I am seeing what I am missing is some ribbon cable to solder to the panel - and + connect points, then those will attach to the connection points on the junction box, which I will attach to the panel.

Is this correct? Get 12 ga stranded ribbon cable and proceed.

It appears nobody ever answered your question. Did you ever figure it out?

I don't have an answer, but I'm interested because I got some unisolar panels that already have junction boxes and it occurs to me they are ideally set up for some passer-by to yank the wires off them. If a junction box performs no other function than being a junction, it seems to me one could get along without it if one could just run a wires from whatever the junction box attaches to down thru a hole made beneath where the panel glue would be so the wires could run unseen to the controller. From what you know or have done, do you think this is possiblel?
