Don't really need one for this thin material, you can brake it with a pc of wood or a straight edge. Layout is in the FRF library.

I bought a new sunshade for my truck. It had a pair of smaller shades with suction cups on them. I stuck one up there from the inside and it works like a charm. Fits like it was made for it.

The reason I put it on the outside was twofold, one to protect the skylight and two to keep the heat out of the inside all together.

I've seen example photos where other users sprayed theirs with Plasticoat paint. I'm taking the same approach. I've done one cost and it looks good from the interior. I'll do another coat when I have time. I have not yet been I hot sunny weather since painting it so I can't testify to its heat-protective effects.

Exterior, but maybe painting the interior of the outer shell could work, too. That wouldn't require getting on the roof.

There is an rv door window cover available that has fit 2 skylights i have had. Framed the light and the flexable shinny cover with velcro tape. Stays up keeps heat out can be removed easy when sun would help warm the room.

My very creative wife took a look at ours, went to the craft store and came back with window clings - we now have a stained glass skylight in our bathroom!


As for the bedroom, we bought a Camco Door Cover (Amazon was giving them away at $8.00!) cut to fit our bedroom window and now our bedroom is as dark as a cave - even in the mid-day sun!

But with paint on the outside and window cling on the inside, you still don't have hail damage protection on the outside of the skylight.
