Default Jet shades for RV-8A

Hi- anyone using jet shades for their RV-8? Am considering them but wondering off you can still taxi with the canopy open halfway? Anyone using them care to give a recommendation/advice be it pro or con? Thx!

Default Thats my RV8 with Jat Shades on the web site

I was lucky enough to be invited to use my canopy for the pattern and love them. Very easy to install and trim if needed for your canopy, i have the mirrored ones, kinds like a F16 canopy, they really do block the heat.
