some shade for the bus

When we are camping and the weather is so nice we leave the bus door open. But the sun likes to shine right in and heat her up. So we need shade.

BEFORE
Baby but Powerful magnets....
I slip a magnet in....
sew her up..... I did this about very eight inches.
And there you go.... Shade. The magnets just pop right on.

Ingenious! Do the magnets get in the way while sewing?

do you ever have moments when you realize that you can be such a dork? well i do. and this post was one such moment. i read your blog every time you write a post. but have i ever read the little bio on the side bar? durh! nope. not until i saw your lovely van. i LOVE VW's. my first car was a 71 supper beetle. oh how i loved her. anyway....um (blush)...just found it silly i had never noticed until now.

oh and btw the magnetic shade is so simple and absolutely brillant. Cheers!

Awesome idea! I may have to steal your idea and modify it a bit for the single cab. Draping sheets over the roof rack doesn't look near this good. =]
