The pilot stated he entered downwind leg for an approach to runway 26. Upon turning final approach, the glare of the setting sun made forward visibility difficult. He made the approach with a little extra altitude to clear trees on the approach end of the runway. The airplane touched down long and fast on the wet runway. Brakes were applied but were not effective. The airplane slid down an embankment off the end of the runway, and nosed over.
