I have used that type of glareshield on another aircraft. It is very nice. They custom build it to your design. It's soft and pliable, doesn't scratch the windshield when removed or replaced. I don't recall the price but it seemed quite fair. I've had mine for over 10 years, no complaints.

Looks very nice. How do you accommodate defrost fans? Do you have to cut your own holes?

Just as a follow up, I ordered and received this glare shield today from vendor listed above. I am VERY impressed. I do have to cut holes for fans, but looks pretty straight forward on how to do that. Looks very well made and I love the thickness and softness of the aft end of it! It also has a ridge on underside that will hide LED glare shield light strip very well. Not installed yet, but glad I chose this one.

I did. Wasn't hard since I already had the holes in the aluminium. I just used a box knife to cut slits to pull the material inward. From there I was able to cut the extra material and foam and squeezed it all in between the fans and the fan covers.
