Re: Windshield sunshade

I suggest you have a look at this existing thread in the Export section - Recommendations for GC Sunshade

Re: Windshield sunshade

Thanks mate im guessing nobody is interested as no interest in that thread either. Freight is the killer, just looking for something that actually fits the screen. Not happy My overland is having the full dash replaced next week due to the leather all separating and lifting. So looking to protect the next one.

Re: Windshield sunshade

I can't help you with your group buy idea, but I do have that particular sunshade and it's the best one I've ever owned. I wish I could get one for my wife's Outback, but alas, it's not available.

I also have that one from Amazon. Very nice, although if that "leather" carry bag is leather, it must have come from a thin skinned butterfly.

You can either shove the leading edge into the gap at the front of the dash, or you can do like they intended and put it carefully in place and then fold the sun visors onto it, and at that point the entire windshield is covered.

Re: Windshield sunshade

If you keep posting only in this thread, and not the Export one, virtually no Aussies will look at it. The is no Aus reference in the thread title, and not in the area that 99.9% of Aus users look.
I suggest you post the same details/question into that Export thread and see what response you get.

I am not sure what one the misses uses in our GC, all I know is that it does not fit perfectly, but it’s pink, and that is what’s important.

Re: Windshield sunshade

i was able to use the sunshade from my WK in my new WK2. It is the same part number for both generations.

Just in case any of you guys had one from a WK.

Re: Windshield sunshade

I also can't help with your group buy, but just wanted to mention that I have the Covercraft UVS100 sunshade for my Jeep and I love it. I've actually bought one of them for all of the vehicles I've owned over the years (Jim - you may want to check into this one for your wife's Outback). It looks just like the one that Just for Jeeps sells except it doesn't say "Jeep" on it in the middle. Shipping might still be a lot since it would be coming from the US but figured I'd mention it in case you wanted to try another option.
