I just installed mine last weekend and they look awsome!!! If you looking for a decent price on them ,Summit has them for 250 bucks. They are very high quality black aluminum. They fit great and hardware seems to be of quality. I would definately reconmend them for the money !!! I will get my car out this weekend and get some pics to post up for ya. Heres a link to the summit ones. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-WL10556

Hey Turtle, the big question many of have that like the look but are concerned about even futher limiting visability from the rear view window... is there any visability left with them on?

Yeah they are not bad at all. the slats are almost flat when you look through the back window in the mirror and its not bad. Not bad enought to worry about at all! if i can i will try to take a pic from inside the car looking out the back window.

No i havent had a chance to clean it up yet. Been remodeling the bathroom and i have drywall dust all over the car in the garage from doing my cuts out there. I just got home tonight from riding quads up at camp all weekend with the family. I will definately get one this week!!! Sorry for the delay guys!

How does the louvers mount at the top bracket still goes under the window channel chrome trim?

I bought a louver from mustangs unlimited years ago,

what happened was a had what might of been an original window louver it was thick aluminum black paint, had a top hinge, it had mounts that went into the window channel at the top it tucked under the chrome. problem was parts were missing from it, the top plate wrecked the chrome trim, i could not find parts and i had to replace the rear window and seal. so i ended up throwing it out.

i got the new one and i felt it was a piece of crap compared to the original one i had. the mounts were cheap bent aluminum the metal was thin and weak, the top bracket slid under the chrome trim and it caused it to pop up and looked bad. the bottom mounts stuck to the glass with double sided tape. i had it on the car for 2 hours, and i felt it looked cheap and i felt it would rip off the car when i drove it. i took it off, 2 years later i traded the whole thing for an original spare tire.

So i'm wondering if its similar to the one i had, there was only one company at the time that made them, and they were not made of ABS plastic back then.

The older good louvers were made by Hammond
Stronger, thicker, covered the whole window

Now it is Astra / Hammond and ...
