12 years later and this is my favorite thing I've seen on the EOC so far. Got a roll in the garage. Might even insulate a bit too (but probably not)I realize Reflectex is opaque, but gosh, that gives me an idea: ordinary small-cell bubble wrap should provide privacy because it's translucent, yet by the same token would keep the car from being a dark cave; plus it should insulate reasonably well. You could trim it into window-size sheets, held in place with Velcro at the corners. Hmmmm.
I bought two of the smaller pre packaged rolls and it is _exactly_ enough to do all the windows.It really might be easiest to go to a hardware store and buy some reflectix. You can calculate how much you'll need and have them cut you a strip from their giant bulk roll.
Also, there are some YouTube videos around this topic that may be worth checking out.
I did all the back windows with cardboard that I got from work. Just cut to shape and pushed under the paneling. Did the front windows with black plastic bags, and the windshield with a generic windshield cover on clearance at walmart. Lived in my E for 4 months in my work parking lot until my transfer went through. All in winter. Benefit to the cardboard is its bettit's better insulation. I finally moved in November last year and was still sleeping in my underwear because I was rosting.Okay, so I went to a local $0.98 store and picked up a sunshade. The height is just about right for the sunroof and I had to do some minor trimming. I taped up the edges with black gaffer's tape and installed some grommets and suction cups. The whole process took about 20 minutes and the fit is great!
