I went into Reddot the other week and picked up three windscreen shades, the reflective ones that fold up like a concertina. They are selling them for $2.99 each so less that $10 to do the three windows in the canopy.

The come with 2 rubber suction cups but don't think they are going to work.

I an going to try some stick on Velcro but will be watching to see what others come up with.

If you are looking for an adhesive to put some Velcro pads on the glass silicone will bond fine and handle the heat as well
A polyurethane bonding adhesive that Siks etc make will work as well

You could also just get the glass tinted with a window film

Well, I don't need that roundtoit any more. Trip the Bunnings this morning and picked up 1M of velcro and it is now all fixed.
Now just need to get away with the beer fridge in the back and settle down for a nice cold beer at beer o'clock ;=))

Can't see any stick on solutions surviving the outback for long.

I've managed to wedge the edge of the reflector stuff under the window trim otherwise I'd be looking at blackout tinting
