Xenon louvers

Hey all, new girl here.

Anyone have any experience/problems with Xenon rear 1/4 window louvers? I'm on my second set and believe most of the issues have stemmed from the inept body shop not knowing how to put them on.

Just wondering if anyone else had any comments - getting ready to reinstall them AGAIN.

As an aside - I order them from American Muscle, and have been dealing with Xenon directly, and both companies are awesome to deal with.

I have some 1:4 window louvers on my new edge v6 since about April now, and side scoops from the same company, mine warped a little in the paint process but went on well, just make sure the area is really clean.
I also taped off the area where small crack between the car and louver was and bought some black silicon(my car is black)
And pinned some PVC between a wall and the louver and put some silicon in the crack and smoothed it out and let it dry on. And u can't even tell, and it held on nicely and won't ever budge again.
For any other color I would use clear.
But that's how I did mine.
Good luck

Re: Xenon louvers

Hey thanks. Would you have any pics of what it looks like with the silicone? I had read about someone using that on the AM reviews. It has literally been a nightmare, getting these things on and this time I just want it done right
