silver is on a distinguished road

Well I'm a bit ahead of myself but today my new solar panel was delivered. I got it from this mob and I got the 190w Kyocera one that was on special when I bought it. Paid $504 delivered (that's with refund as per below)
I asked them to do a controller bypass set up which cost $59 but they forgot to do it which was annoying and they are sending me the joiners to do it myself and charging me $20 and refunding $39.
I'm doing the bypass so I can use it with the Ctek stuff that will be charging my batteries which have a controller built in or can use it to charge a battery direct if I need to.
The way he described how to do the bypass does not really make sense to me but can't find any youtube stuff or pics which would explain it. The way I picture how you would do it doesn't seem to be the same as he was describing.
Any ideas out there? I'll probably take it to a solar shop in the end.
The panel is a bit bigger than I thought it would be but should be able to pump in some serious juice.
