So I got tired of having the sun bake my interior and turning my van into scorching greenhouse inferno. So I bought a roll of refrectix insulator and got to work making 3 sun shades. Why 3? one for windshield, one for passenger, and one for driver. That way the sun simply cannot get in.
I started by making a paper template of the areas I wanted to cover. I inserted the paper into the window, and got the critical outline.
I then cut out the outline, and fit it into the window to make sure the template came out well. It fits perfectly. It’s such a snug fit, that it will not require any special holder. just the pressure of the material itself against the edges will hold it in place.
Now in the image below, I transferred the template onto the roll of reflectix. Then I used scissors to accomplish the cutout.
Below is the final result. PERFECT SUN BLOCKING! The car is so much cooler at the end of the day. It’s a must have for #VANLIFE
