So what's the problem?? If you read the OP, the instrctions have never been updated and Swan just doesn't have compitant reps available anymore for tech support. Those panels are too heavy for silicone to support on its own... Maybe 15 years ago when they were manufactured nice and flat, now its nothing but large cups and bows in the sheets.
I still have not experienced any problems using PL...

There is no problem... but I will continue to use the instructions the manufacturer supplies until I see something from them that states otherwise.
That way if there is a problem with a job related to attachment method the ball is in their court.
You may have used your method thousands of times with no problems but if there is ever a warranty issue they can always turn it around and blame it on the (In their opinion) the installation method.
Companies are always trying to wiggle out of a situation where they may have to make good for defective product and I like to give them as little wiggle room as possible.

I like your method. I often use hot glue to fasten items until my primary glue/adhesives sets properly. I think there is good thought behind what you are doing and that is most important.
