    I love my new Tacoma, but one small thing has been really bugging me. The 6disc XM radio has a very nice perforated metal housing at the top that looks really sharp. My problem is that when the sun is high and bright, it reflects off the metal, making it difficult to read the display and also interferes with driving somwhat. I've thought about some different ways of making a custom shade that would just kinda hang over the top of the radio, similar to the way the guages are recessed behind the wheel. I can visualize a nice clip-on strip of plastic or aluminum that would go smoothly with the rest of the dash / interior, but I was just wondering if anybody has ideas or seen a product already available.

    Does anybody else have this problem?
