Hello frothy: We leave our shade down to block the sun and privacy at night. I'm not sure if you can see the shade roller ends but I think not.

You can also search these forums for door window shade and see what might pop up. Here is one that may help:
I'm sure someone who had removed the shade will chime in with a good answer.
