T-top shades, in or out?

This is a discussion on T-top shades, in or out? within the Firebird / WS6 forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; it depends...i have them, so i'll use them when ever-especially if i know it will be parked in the sun ...

    When we bought my wifes car, it didn't come with them either. Doesn't even have the velcro on the tops. I guess the orig. owner didn't want to spend the extra money. It really sucks, b/c we live in south texas where it gets umm "warm".

    I've used them on other T-top cars I've owned but they'd snap in. I don't use them in my car now cause I don't want the little velcro stickers on there. I like looking out the top anyway.

    I have had my Z a little less than a year now and have never put them in. When I bought the car last year the first owner still had them in the plastic. When I took it to get the windows tinted I had the tint shop but a piece of 5% tint on the T-tops.

    My car is so much cooler with the t-top shades in and a sun shade in. Not hot at all when I go out now, was about 150 degrees without the shades.

    there had been times that I took mine out at night and forgot or just too lazy to put them back in and the next afternoon I find my car's interior very hot and I think to myself what a Stupid S**T I was for not doing it...So yes I think it does keep the car cooler

    I just bought my car and it had the t-top shades in the trunk that have never been used. They still have that cardboard over the sticky part that you're supposed to attach to your t-tops.

    They're still sitting in my trunk.

    nope, i have mine on all the time, unless i take my tops completely off. i think they just make the car cooler, and darker insde.

    Living in Arizona with extreme heat in the summer and the damage that the sun can do to the interior makes me leave mine in ALL the time. I'd hate to have to get new interior and a new dash because they dried out and cracked.
