Prompt Sunscreens go up as fast as the Magnashades and are about half the cost. Just sayin.

I am working with Magneshade to outfit my coach. I have the split windshield like yours. It looks like you opted for separate shades for each half of the windshield.

Is there a reason you didn't go with a one piece across both halves? (I saw another DS owner at the NKK rally that also had the split shades.)

Do you have any issues with light getting through the gap between the 2 halves?

Do you have any pictures on how the magnets were mounted on the side windows, especially the driver side?

On the side windows the magnets are on the outside of the window. On the windshield they are on the inside. The side window magnets are thinner black rare earth magnets - very strong. The ones for the winshield are thicker ones. I love my Magneshades! Wow what a difference they make in reducing heat inside. Plus i think they look great too. Easy up means I use them a lot. Simple take down doesn't hurt either. Had them for three years and they still look new. Lived thru a 50 mph windstorm a couple of weeks ago and they were still in place.

I understand there is a "spacer" magnet for the driver side window that can be opened. Does that fit on top of the thinner magnets? Also, assuming that is true, do those thinner magnets interfere with the operation of at the driver's window at all?

Roger from Magna Shade suggested we do two piece as one piece I's very heavy and harder to put on .
You do have to adjust them but when you do their is no light.

Some magnets are stacked and some go on the body not window so it can open fine
