If you’re plagued by glaring sun that comes through the part of the windshield that is not covered by the sun visors, you can block it out for less than a dollar’s worth of materials and a little time.
Measure between the two inside hooks that hold the sun visors in place. Cut material dense enough to block out the sun’s rays and long enough to overlap both hooks (match the color to the interior of the vehicle). The width should be approximately that of the sun visors. Using string “hooks,” the new center visor can be hung in place after removing the vehicle’s visors from their hooks; the visors can then be re-hooked, leaving the material in place. When not in use, you can roll it up and secure it with a piece of hook-and-loop material, or remove it and store it in the glove box.
