Robin DR400 canopy tinting

I have a Robin DR400 that I love to fly but in this weather is unbearable due to the heat. Itís a real greenhouse. I have considered getting the canopy partly tinted but have been told that normal car type tint canít be applied due to the curvature and the heat needed to shape it.
Anyone had similar experience? Any other ideas?
Would be great to make the most of the summer weather without frazzling.

Thanks in advance

On a DR1050 the top had "felt-type-stuff" glued to the top, (inside), probably original from the CEA factory. CEA was Robin.
