modifications > Sunshade

Why did you modify a sunshade for your GRC?

It gets hot in Louisiana for most of the year. Dark tinted windows and sunshades are a must. I purchased a sunshade from Amazon for the 2020-2023 Corolla sedan/hatchback. However, I had to modify it because I installed both a dashcam as well as a radar detector under the rearview mirror.

I haven't sewed anything since a bean bag in the 5th grade. A few stab wounds on my fingers and 30 minutes later, my sunshade fits around my front dashcam. A local shop wanted $70 and a 3-week wait to modify the sunshade. Prom season. LOL.
