I bought some new windshield sun shades recently, the type with flexible fabric stretched on a spring steel wire around the perimeter. As I was inserting these on windshield I started to imagine a small version that would cover the T-Top glass on the inside. The radius-ed corners would even fit the inside gasket & trim. Such a shade would block 100% of the sunlight, be very light weight and store behind the seat.
Looks like 18" x 18" would fit nicely in the seal / trim area inside of the T-Top glass and have sufficient grip to stay in place. I found a set of sun shades intended for partial blocking of the sun (mesh fabric) on side windows with the spring wire, that are 14" x 18". The 18" direction fits just as I imagined, obviously the 14" direction is too small. Even with only two sides engaging the T-Top seal / trim it stays securely in place.
Has any of you folk seen such a shade? 18" x 18" spring wire with opaque silvered fabric? I did some internet searching but did not find any shades that small. Has anyone already tried to make such a shade?
I might have to see if the fabric can be purchased at a fabric store and make a set.
