The "sunshades" remind me of those installed on Baldwin cab units that were shipped to Argentina from the US from 1953-54. I have not seen any of these sunshades in your more recent videos and photos. Has their use been discontinued?

The sunshades have been applyed to the AC44is only, but a few C44s also received them.
Actually, these sunshades are a protection to the windshields from ore stones during the loading process in some silos where windshilds were broken.
I have two new videos where the AC44 s have sunshades. Soon I will post them in youtube.
