Acrylic Top Solutions ?

I would like to reduce the heat/light that comes through the acrylic top. On previous posts I have read solutions from painting it, putting in a vinyl headliner, purchasing the headliner blackout from Mid-America (stays on with suction cups-yuk). My concern, is that when I went to a local window tinting dealer, they would not do anything for fear of it cracking the acrylic top, I guess from it possibly generating too much heat.

I live in Colorado, where the suns intensity can be very strong, and therefore not sure whether I should worry about some of these solutions causing a problem or not.

Seeing out the top is not that important, so a total blackout is acceptable.

Thanks for any input.

I have the shade that's vinal and sticks up by itself. It cuts down on the heat a lot.

I have one of those shades from MAD they have plastic tabs that fit between the weather stripping not suction cups like the catalogue says hope this helps.
