Greenhouse Shadecloth

Attached is an image of my greenhouse back in October 2007 when I was 
washing the roof, pre-winter.

I have speculated about creating removable shade cloth units such as I 
have for the rest of the roof but cannot visualize how to fit around the 
wax filled cylinders that open / close the vents in response to temperature.

I think either of the two very thoughtful suggestions would be awkward 
to implement.

I don't think laying belly down on the slanting garage roof and 
attempting to neatly apply greenhouse paint to the roof vents is a 
feasible option. Also, I've seen the greenhouse paint used on glass, but 
don't know if it is suitable for polycarbonate twin wall.

If shade cloth is, with some difficulty, glued to the interior of the 
roof vents how would it be removed in winter.

Keep the ideas coming - sooner or later there will be an Aha! moment and 
I'll learn the answer.
