Default The Next Step... to buy a Koger Sunshade. I haven't done much hot weather flying in my -8 yet, but I went up yesterday afternoon and felt the heat on the back of my neck and my bald spot!

I installed a second piece of aluminum angle, just like the one used to 'lock' the canopy in the closed position, about 2 1/2" aft of the 'fully closed' position so I can 'lock' the canopy with it open about 2". Works great to keep it much cooler, but like others have said make sure it's not going to rain while you are away from the plane.

I also have a Kroger sun shade..
