    Default For those of you with sun blinds

    Hi guys,

    This is a question for those of you with sun blinds. How do you have the rear blinds fitted?

    I have mind overlapping in the middle, which is the only way I could get them to fit. I did try butting them up to each other, but then they bulged in the middle. I try and have a thin line down the middle so its not too much of a distraction in the mirror.

    I do like the blinds, they are a good cheap alternative to having your windows tinted, but the blinds for the back window could connect better. If one of them had some clips that the other clipped into, it would have been so much better.

    Your comments are appreciated.

    Hi carl, I had same problem, they do however bend into shape quite nicely, and they shouldn't overlap.
    with some fiddling you will get them perfect, just takes a while tho.............hth

    Mine fit without the need to overlap, push them well into each side.
    Worth checking to see if your trim is a little off set although I doubt it hth .....................

    Thanks guys, wasn't aware they weren't meant to overlap. The benefit of them overlapping is that the join is thinner.

    I will take a picture of the current join.

    I will give it ago with fitting them properly.

    Well I have just gone and had a play with my blinds and still can't get them to fit how they should. They still bulge in the middle.

    I don't think I have the patience to keep trying.
