It's one of those cheap roll-down blinds from Home Depot, about $15 I think.

It was 120" and I cut it down to 88" on the table saw. I then cut off the bottom at the height of the windshield and tied off the hundred or so bits of string that hold it together. It sticks to the top of the windshield frame with 3 hard drive magnets.

Jake.

Not too bad if you have nimble fingers.

Congrats on "finishing" your bus Jake. You have every reason to be proud of it. It does have that very comfortable look to it. I wish you many happy miles for your effort.
