Replace Curtains with Eclipse Windshield Shade

My wife and I finally could not stand battling with the lower alumninum curtain track. I was in exactly the wrong position for relaxing on the rear gaucho. So out it went. I replaced it with a Eclipse windshield screen designed for vehicles. It is aluminized and reflective. I used a 1" piece of aluminum angle iron to attach velcro for the closure. Only drawback it is either fully open or closed. One set costs about $50, and is good for 2 windows

I intend to add Reflectix insulation covered with silver upholstery vinyl to cover the ugly wall around the window.

I went back to the Eclipse Sunshade website. The price is acually $44.95 for a pair from 22" up to 35". So each window is $22.425 cents not countin a little velcro and aumiminum angle iron. The ones I installed I liberated from my truck, are at least 5 years old, and are still in perfect shape.
