I think they are the best out there for louvers, they actually look right~ just a major pain to install

Re: Quarter window louvers

I want to see pictures of the installed product , and I agree with SpectorV-as an actual "replacement" insert for the factory installed glass-they just 'look right' . The factory installs them on the Cobra Jet.

Re: Quarter window louvers

just have to work hard to install them and looking out through them is limited as the clear part is plastic.

Re: Quarter window louvers

My Roush came with window louvers and although I kind of like how they look, they create a huge blind spot when I am backing out of angle parking or out of my alley....

Re: Quarter window louvers

I don't have the silverhorse, mine are factory louvers and I agree that they create major blind spots but I do love how they look.

Re: Quarter window louvers

Silverhorsed look hot. I saw some other flush mounts somewhere that weren't slotted, basically blacked the whole window out with matching body color and I thought those were nice.

Re: Quarter window louvers

Just looked at the silverhorse website. Seems you have to remove the window and do some minor plastic removal for the install. Forget that!

Re: Quarter window louvers

They look killer . I'm disappointed that they are "plastic", though . I would be much more inclined to do the swap-if they were tempered glass.. As for being a "blind-spot"-that would not be an issue for me. The little windows have never provided me with anything close to a space for 'visibility', in the first place...
