    Gen 2 Sunshades are much harder to find these days. Back in 2013 the PriusChat store sold a sunshade for every window of Gen2 and to this day I still love pulling into a rest stop and putting a sun shade over every window and having privacy to hang out and then sleep.

    If you want to make your own sun shades let me know and I could trace their shapes onto some paper and mail them to you?

    I'm pretty sure I found mine in a generic auto parts store, and checked that it claimed to fit my Prius year.

    The one I found is the style using fabric with a spring wire around the edge; grab two opposed sides and give a little twist and it loops itself up to 1/4 the size just like that, and stashes easily beside a seat or wherever. To deploy, just unstash and let go, and it sproings back out to full size.

    The one that was advertised as fitting my Prius was the first I've seen to be made of two such panels. Stowing it is just a matter of sliding one panel over the other and then doing the little twist so they both fold up. Deploying is just letting them sproing out, then sliding the two panels apart to cover the whole windshield.

    Heatshield.

    If you were closer (and there wasn't a pandemic), I'd give you mine.

    (I still have Gen 2 and Gen 3 heatshield windshield shades)

    I won’t ship to the states until the borders are opened. Cross border postage and duties are exorbitant. It’s cheaper for me to drive across and post it via USPS or any of the couriers than to ship it from Canada.

    I've used these on a Subaru Forester and also my Prius. They fit like a glove. I also have the front side windows, living in Arizona.

    I have a Heatshield brand I bought for a 2008 that I don't have anymore. Then I used it in my 2011, and now I don't have that anymore. My 2021 has a completely different windshield with a camera and rain sensor, so I bought another Heatshield for my new car. I rolled up my old Heatshield and put it in the box the new one came in. I suppose it could be shipped that way anywhere in the country. Still in good shape too.

    Still on my 13 year old insulated custom fit Weather Tech sunshade.
    Shiny on one side black on the other depending if you want to cool or heat.

    Still on my same Wet Okoles for the seat covers.

    you get what you pay for.
