When I first read the OP's forum name, I thought he might be an old HS friend (class of '59). His name was Richard Anuskiewicz. We just called him Dick A to Z or wrote it A2Z.

If you don't want to see the sky go for the shade otherwise I'd go for the tint.

check the sticker on the glove box to see how it was sold by the dealer.

I like my suction cup headliner. It softens the interior sounds.

Bought my transparent top 3 years ago. Colored top has been under the bed ever since.
And this is from a guy that prefers painted hard tops.

All I've ever had is the TT. If I tried a colored top I would probably feel claustrophobic.

And I would keep looking up for the sun, clouds, moon, etc.

If you don't like the transparent top, you could always get it wrapped. Its probably a lot cheaper than buying a second top and you can always go back if you want.

I only have the transparent top. The build code sticker in the glovebox only indicates that one. Mine has a ton of micro-fine crazing, but can only be seen in bright sun, up close and from a certain angle. My bodyshop guy said he can finish it down then spray it with smoke tint and clear, with a flex additive so it won't craze again, says he's done many of them.

Mine came with a static cling liner, which has dot-matrix holes. I have never removed it, and even in FL summer the car is nice and cool but I can still see the sky.

I got mine from West Coast Corvette, like $39 + shipping.

I also have the cling sun shade and it makes a big difference.

That's a cool (hah!) idea...I never thought of that. I'm guessing you could have it wrapped for under $200, which is certainly cheaper than finding a good condition solid top.
