    Coyote, there was an interesting discussion in the old forum about rear louvers, which would address your scenario well. It would provide a direct rear view horizontally while providing shade vertically. The idea of putting louvers on the outside vs. the inside of the glass was discussed, in addition to the idea of putting solar panels on the louver surfaces to get the best of all worlds. However, that solution would have additional structural + wiring complexity, be more difficult to keep everything clean, and if the louvers were external to the glass they would create aerodynamic turbulence.
