Redneck Sunshade Installation 101

One reason why we have not had a outside sunshade is that they require getting on a ladder to snap the top in place.  Ladder = danger of falling!  The $55 bargain was the snap-top variety, but MM had a better idea.  Of course he did!

…and making a tab that goes over a screw added to the middle of the roof at the top of the windshield, he is now able to put the whole sunshade on without using a ladder.

Life is good, y'all!

He's so clever. I hate ladders so I'm glad MM worked that out. And that you've got it made in the shade!

Big hugs xoxo

That's our MM! He's so handy! Still chuckling about the bus, but then I know you're still chuckling about the different navigation systems.
