Anyone make?

I notice driving around with the top down in the afternoon heat, that I sometimes don't love all the exposure to the sun. With the top up, it's like driving a coupe. Does anyone make a canvas top that attaches to the windshield frame and the roll bar? It would be nice to have some protection from the sun but still have that open top feel. No I do not want a jeep. Just curious.

Kind of like a Spyder top....Seems there was a thread on here awhile back where someone was looking at the same issue.

Yup, had one on. I guess I can just long sleeve it for now. Thought I would ask.

Here is a recent thread on the topic. And a photo of what you would like for a Boxster. I have never seen a clean looking one that I would attach to my Boxster. If there was a Spyder like one that looked good I would be interested too.

Edit... While I am typing, Boxxster is posting the same past thread. Nice!
