Mesh UV Top Side Curtains

So I installed an belt rail on the inside of the tub so I can run the Exmor Trim USA UV mesh side curtains when I am running my full top to cut down on passenger discomfort such as glare and sunlight cooking the kid. Here are a few pics as it turned out excellent. I can post of shot of the full top on with the side curtains if any one cares but it does help keep the inside cooler.

On the topic of cutting down interior heat from the sun, can anyone recommend a tint for the front windshield or if not a tint a coating that doesn't obstruct visibility.

Great job. Many more pics needed. Like the interior belt rail without the top on.

Are you running full mesh top or just side? If full, what are your experiences with it for the past 9 months?

Just the sides in summer if I am also running the a full soft top. I have run the whole 4 piece kit but not for any extended period. The only thing that sucked were the straps to hold the top on. I went on fleabay and bought other one.
