Thinking about Car curtains

Perhaps cardboard curtain is not so beutiful after all...

The idea is to put up some nylonstring ( paracord ) and then use this curtain holders from Ikea. I Think I will use fleece as a curtain. It has pretty good insulation value.

I dont want to glue anything to the car. Everything has to be able to easily come off.

I added small paperclips to the headliner, and then attached some paracord string.

However the paracord, nylonstring is a bit elastic and stretches a bit too much.
