I'm dissapointed - he didn't use a scalpel.

Default low tech sun shade fix

My solution for a sagging roll-up shade was even more low tech.

I have a small pillow that I wedge between the center speaker and the shade. The center of the shade is now pushed up tight against the glass. The very edges are something that I'd like to duplicate the stick trick if I could to make them block more sunlight.

Plus, if the Missus ever makes me wait in the car while she shops I'll have a pillow ready to be pressed into service for a nap. The shade, if needed, can just sag in that case.

Dr. Fusco,

I'd need more than a couple. And they'd have to go cross wise in some places! Way too much like work - I think I'll just be happy with the sagging.

I have the one from AutoAnything like Syncmaster posted pictures of and like it so far. No problem to set up and take down - just takes seconds - and not difficult to store.

Another vote for the CoverCraft UVS100 from AutoAnything. Best sunshade I have ever used and I've tried most types at one time or another. This is the 4th one I owned for various cars I've had and would not hesitate to buy it again. Well worth the money since I use it every day all year round. Outstanding fit, easy to install/remove, easy to store, won't sag and lasts a long time.
