1958 Flying Cloud Simple Solar

I have a 1958 Flying Cloud that is pretty much original interior and exterior, that I would like to boon dock on solar. Might need to periodically run a generator for soon to be installed rooftop a/c.

I have 2 Trojan T105 batteries wired in series.

Mostly need for ac power will be charging phones and laptops. Plan to install LED task lighting in a few areas. I would like maintain the original look without butchering the cabinetwork.

1.Is the Zamp solar systems a good fit? I don't plan to mount panels on the roof, due to parking under shade at times in the summer/spring. Also concerned about screwing through roof.

2. I have the original ac electric service panel that I assume will need to be upgraded for new A/C rooftop. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

3. Any recommendations for simple inverter for charging phones and laptops?

4. Any suggestions for simple dc electrical distribution panel.

5. Any recommended low profile rooftop air conditioners?

Appreciated the help
