The T-Top is your biggest problem with the heat of the sun, tint it dark. Most Vette owners by pass the heater core in the summer with shut off valves or capping the hoses off. This keeps the cabin cooler. Hope that helps.
During the summer I get a windshield solar relector from Wal Mart and cut pieces to fit and tape in on each top (or use Velcro) with the shiny side up. The reflection and insulation work great. I take it off as soon as fall arrives because I like the sun shining in. It is a little red neck but this is Arkansas and hot and humid and I don't want to tint my windows.
