Default Offering a discount on a standard Canopy and Rear window in the Eastern PA area

Hi folks - I just realized that there was a lower UV version of the canopy and window offered by Vans. My dermatologist (whom I did not bother consulting with) thinks that anything that reduces UV is good for my fair Irish skin. I will be purchasing the low UV versions in the spring and can ship what I have back to Vans or offer to you at a discount to reflect restock and shipping costs. The canopy is located near KPTW. Anybody interested?

It's only by chance that I found out there are several choices of canopy so hopefully through these posts builders are made aware.

Indeed! I stumbled across it. The value of this forum is shown in many ways!

do you have a link to the low UV canopy? I would like to know the difference between the two. Anyone know what the normal canopy is versus the low UV?

here is a Plexiglass link with a UV transmittance graph.

No - just the Vans part numbers: C-01401 SC-15, F-14126 SC-15. Post if you find anything.
Thanks

I wonder how much difference the low UV canopy really makes...If it was enough that I could forego wearing sunscreen then it would be worth it to me.

This is the advice I received from Vans re sun protection.

We also have an option that isnít darker but it has almost total UVA and UVB protection

Part # F-14126 SC-15 (adds $75) Part # C-01401 SC-15 (adds $247)

So from that I reckon all you lads will be able to fly around in your bikinis at no sunburn risk. 😂

None of these part numbers match in a Van's search.

The shipping cost probably won't make it reasonable for you otherwise I would have taken it. I am on the west coast and can't imagine the shipping would be cheap.
