Louvers and public opinions

Now that my show season is finally over, time to mod for spring. I'm thinking leguna seca machined face, the boss valences, and some louvers. Should I get the triple roush style, the five fin classic or the blank plate to make it appear like a 69 fastback. Here is my car and a little mustang customizer

There are some good pics on this site that have these mods done. Check the "Pictures and Vidios" section for members posts on their Mustang.

I went the route of the front GT/CS/Boss front lower valance and splitter on my 2011. I also stayed with the upper GT grill, but purchased the center grill covers for the GT fog lights, and used the lower valance style fog lights. I prefer this look.

Out back I installed the Shelby lower valance, and a Carbon fiber 3D GT500 rear deck spoiler.

I recently installed a set of rear side window Eleanor style louvers. Not sure yet if those will stay.

I'm thinking the 3 vent roush style. Been bouncing between that and the classic 5 vent style. Pretty much settled on the 3 vent style.

That's my thing. The 3 vent cover window and an inch around. The 5 is slimmer.

I was going to go to this front end style but I like the classic 69 look with the 4 lights. My lower valence will have the brake ducts

I have the blank plate style and prefer it. With any of them, I recommend putting the Matte Black Quarter Window Blackout Cover from AM on so that you are not looking at the underside of the louvers. I put mine on a month before putting the louvers on. I was trying to decide to color match or go with matte black.

How do they fit on the window?

The blackout covers are essentially heavy vinyl decals. You wet the window and peel the back off. Then you slide it into position onto the window and squeegee it out. It takes only a few minutes and does not come loose at over 85 mph, so it is permanent. The louvers will adhere directly to the vinyl.

I have the ME forum decal on my quarter window. But I guess you gotta give something to get something. I thought these just fit on the window and had an edge that stuck into the groove the window has.

I like the 3 vent also. I recommend not using the black out vinyl. Tint the window instead and u will not really see the louver, just a shadow. This way, u still have a bit of visability there. Backing up, vis is shot to hell with this window blacked out.

Thanks! I had them custom air brushed to give it the shadowing effect.

Paint the undersides of the quarter window louvers flat black. Then looking from the inside out, it is not an issue.

+1 on tint. My state only allows 35%

I've been wondering how well I could see out them but I wasn't going to depend on them in anyway

Believe me, they help. Blind as a bat backing out of my driveway and mainly use the small convex mirror on my right outside mirror to keep an eye on traffic coming, but u can actually get a small glimpse of the area in ur blind spot (through the vents)...enough to c if someone is approaching. Light tint works well.

Each person to their own tastes. I got the solid covers, so it was cheaper to put the vinyl on myself, and it looks great. I had the Mustang for almost a year before installing anything on the windows, and I never used the windows for anything. I have the backup camera and with the side mirrors, no issues. In fact, the side windows are so hard to see out, I think trying to use them would be less safe than any added view they might give.

I use them when you have to turn around on a road, and the angle, I use the quarter windows. But the small mirror can pick up that.

The best investment I made was getting the rear camera. It won't be long that it will be a common feature. I still am thinking about a backup alarm. It is amazing how quickly something can pop up behind a car and electronic detectors are great for keeping track of those.

I was going to install the camera when I install the raxiom navigation and back up camera.

Do you have a picture of your car with the louvers? I'm really digging that and then the rear louver now
