    my home made t top shades

    Used paper for a template, then cut them out using an exacto blade.
    I used foam board, i guess that's what it is. basically it's kinda like cardboard with foam in the middle. i used black so that it doens't show on the t tops. i'm going to be putting a camaro emblem on them, then covering them in headliner material in the near future.

    helps keep the leather seats cool.

    would any one be interested in a set for say $35 bucks?

    That's a good idea.
    I only wish i had t-tops.

    I think they would look better if you made the 'M' more narrow so it's the same width as the rest of the letters....

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    instead of white on black, woulda been cool if you could make a letter impression on the black-like it's embossed. I think the Black n white is to contrasty for interior. Cool idea, agree on the width of the M

    I'm interested post up some pics when you have a finished product. Will you be able to match the interior color?

    ummm I think that white logo and all looks very tacky.. if you have a nice looking interior then two huge white chevrolet emblems gleeming on your ceiling and big white letters..

    I dunno bout the rest of you but my t-top shades came with the car when I ordered mine

    ONCE AGAIN, FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T READ. THIS IS ONLY TEMPORARY. I AM GOING TO COVER THEM WITH GREY HEADLINER MATERIAL! this is just step two, of three steps.

    I get it, I like the idea. cover it in material so it's raised in the shape of the letters, we've all seen it before on other stuff.

    I can read but it is what it is .. generic looking and cheap.. to each their own but Id rather add to the cars look rather than take away from it. Some may want to bootleg pieces for your car .. kudos to you
