track and runners cost money and are not cheap! so you dont have many options.

I bought the largest black out blind they sell in argos and cut it up (cheaper than buying material) folded (ironed) and then punched, all holes have brass eyelets (get a tool off ebay, 5 quid) they are held up with wire net curtain spring wire, which is sprayed black. and i am very happy with them.
cheap but dont look cheap :)

i have thermall screens for the front windows :)

I have silver screens for the front windows but in the back I used the remnants of the black lining carpet I had left.

Basically I cut the lining carpet to the shape of the side winows and back windows then sewed some velcro strips along the edges and sides.
I had to put some corresponding velcro strips on the windows themselves (not ideal but my windows are limo tinted so you can't really see the velcro).
Hey presto, you stick the lining carpet to the windows and a perfect fit and my is it dark inside :ILU:

Does that make sense :confused:

Possibly use black out curtains (as suggested by hoverjon) & cut/sew to fit.
I used this on mine. I used silent gliss track on the drivers side & cab separater, magnets on the SLD door (the neo-thingy very strong type). Here are my curtains:

Use "F" profile silent gliss because you can bend it round the front window, takes a bit of doing but not too bad.dont get "h" profile cos it collapses when you bend it.
Then a bit of the white stretchy stuff along the bottom of the curtain so you can tuck the curtain behind it when they are drawn.
I have used "h" profile down the sides because that is what i bought first until i realised it wont bend

I've got Van-X curtains at all windows except front. Look great, well worth the extra money.

just drill a little hole and screw a self tapper in, or a pop rivet works quite well. I got mine for 10 a length at our local caravan and camping parts shop, and then got the sliders and hooks from JK they also do the rails in a kit but they are the "h" profile that are difficult to bend, but will be ok as long as you are not bending them around the cab,so just put a divider up
