    I had to get McGyver and made a sun shade out of a mail envelope. Heck even used the strip of glue you use to close it to put it together. [​IMG]

    MacGyver would have incorporated gum into the hack, though :)

    Probably need to cut a slot in top for the bracket to reach the device. Also, possibly hole on side for cable.

    It actually clamps in with the device. But good suggestion for the cable

    Hah!!!!

    I think there's a lot of us at it.... here's mine so far made with medium thickness cardboard and velcro to hold the sides together. I'm going to cover it with duct tape to strengthen it. It fits really well on the TX!

    I just ordered my P3A and plan on 3D printing a sunshade for it once it gets here. Amazon says it should be here Friday.

    For the love of all that is sacred, it's MacGyver, not McGyver.
