2010 Camaro SunShade

Okay folks hot off the press. I just helped Wooddash.com prototype a sunshade for our new Camaros. I received it today.
I have yet to put it in the car and see how well it fits. Pictures will follow in a couple of days.

Yeah Yeah, I know it's worthless without Pictures. Their coming.

Here's the link:

Interesting. I had one in the late 80s. I had no idea people still used those.

Maybe in the sunbelt or southwest.

Besides tinting, we in Texas still use these things (also used them in Florida). I am going to purchase one from Harley D...they say they will make one also to fit the Camaro

needs no explanation

Prototype SunShade

Okay, As promised, I have a few pictures of the new SunShade.
Be advised though, This is a PROTOTYPE.
The sunshade is about 4" short, it fits the windshield perfectly. If the Camaro had normal sized sun visors this would be a perfect fit. However, since the sun visors are only 4" wide, they fall short of the windshield about an inch. The sun visors need to over lap the windshield to hold the shade in place.
I will be emailing the company tommorrow and letting them know of the discrepency. Although, I had the link in the earlier post, and the company has it on their website, I would wait to order until the modification is made.

Looks great... however it appears there is a lot of light let through still -- what does it do for the interior temp after a long stint in the hot sun?

Out in AZ, we prefer the relective type for keeping interior temps down.

It does look sharp though!

I have use these for over 14 years with all my cars. The car is alot cooler with them im guess 20 degrees or more.. I have never burnt my legs on my leather even when i had black leather on the hottest day. BTW it is made with the reflective material.
