    Tried to source some Aluminet but can,t find any.
    Using my light meter today i reckon i can away with about 25% shading if i up the air flow a bit(not a problem with my new fan).
    Will have to try it to be sure so fingers crossed.

    New lighter shading.

    This should give me about 50% shading .I can open the normal vents still but not fully.Just need some sun to put theory to the test.

    With the weather being so good this weekend i,ve had a chance to monitor heat/light levels with the lighter shading. Max heat today was 96f in the g/h (with the door open) which is pretty good considering the ambient was in the 80,s. Highest light levels was a little over 4000fc but non of the plants are showing any ill effects(even the Phals) .I have a 16" oscillating fan blowing directly onto the plants which should help. If i get a completely cloud free day with the temps as high as today then i will need more shading.
