Ooooooo!!!! Very nice. Now it might be asking for too much, but I wonder if it looks better with those Window Louvers or the classic ones that Ford offers (like the ones on my 2014).

The 2011 came with those so for now I have left them on, But have debated swapping them.

I like how it blended the side scoops. Like, I can still see the parking line reflections and everything.

"It" blended? lol Oh Kevin, photoshop is not a magic wand (though it has that tool). I added the reflection, matched the color (that was originally a gray side scoop) and lighting, added shadows. It's not like ordering car insurance online.

So now you want both the new and classic side louvers?

Looks like the Roush louvers on mine. Best looking one in my opinion.

Well I never said I was a pro at knowing the ins and outs of Photoshop. lol

If you want to try your hand at swapping the window louvers then yea. If we only get 1 freebie, then I am thankful as it is.

I would go on a limb and say Tombstone. Because although I am young, I do enjoy an old western at times. Even though my wife doesn't share the same taste in movies


Edit: You see Kurt Russell came back for Furious 7 right? lol 20+ years later still making movies.

Tombstone was an excellent movie. I thought Val Kilmer did a good job as Doc.

Hey Scott, after looking at Kevin's louvers I realized that I did not size them properly on that first pic I did. I assumed they fit inside the window like the ford ones I have. Here is the proper version...

Yea see idk....all that matte black just doesn't sit well with the gloss black. I feel they conflict too much imo.

The reason I like it is twofold:

1) it looks like his wheels are matte black and if so they compliment each other.

2) he would always have the option to paint them gloss black or match his ride later if he changed his mind.

IMO he's got kind of a "tough guy" black n blue Mad Max thing going, which the matte louvers fits.

Well yea I can understand the black and blue thing. But I don't like when there is a heavy amount of both gloss black and matte black. Because - yes he could later paint the extras gloss black if he wanted. But if he wanted all matte black, he would have to remove the stripes and install a new set.

We shall see only time will tell it could turn out decent looking and unique or it could turn out to look like i am colorblind and can't blend colors well <--- which is most likely true i suck at colors thats why i like play it goes with "Almost" Everything

And I would not suggest matte stripes. Very high maintenace. The matte louvers might add the perfect balance between matte and gloss... Worth a try and can paint later.

I would tint the rear window and leave it (I got mine tinted recently and damn does it look so much better than that AM louver, IMO).

Hope this helps...

Looks like mine except my car came black...the matte louvers are "so-so" at best with my car. Need some other matte accents to make it not look so out of place.

You show your age WAY too much calling Tombstone an OLD western. Havent seen anything in the last 20 years that even comes close, but you do have good taste in movies...so far, LOL

Hawk, if you don't mind, could you please PS some louvers on mine? Have been thinking about it for months. My biggest concern is rear view impairment when switching lanes.
Thank you!

Send me a link of the louvers and color you want. And I have louvers and they dont impede your vision as much as you would think.

I got 'em too. you dont need to be looking out those windows when you have the blind spot mirror built into your side views. Just takes some getting used to.

The black louvres look good with your scheme. But I prefer the side window tinted dark.
That being said I'm old school and just have to have some chrome on my car. Chrome center caps are going on next tire rotation.
