LH OEM Kona Blue Louver

I have a 2011 Kona Blue GT Brembo that I'm adding side window louvers too.

I bought a new OEM RH Kona Blue rear window louver on EBay from fdaccdepot. However, I can't seem to find a OEM LH Kona Blue louver. Any help any finding the LH would be greatly appreciated. On the other hand should I buy the primed LH and just paint it myself?

Anybody else in this situation?

Thoughts?

David

Thanks OzzyLiriano. The best price I can find right now is a primed louver at $86.63. I purchase the RH painted louver for only $26.00 including shipping.

OzzyLiriano, I found a pair for $57, but they aren't OEM Ford louvers. If you found OEM can you send me the link on Ebay?

Thanks,

David

That's the company I bought the original RH louver from. Unfortunately, he doesn't carry the left. I guess FORD bought to many RH Kona blue louvers.

Well, I broke down and bought a LH primed louver. So, now I need to paint the louver. Any recommendations? Who should I buy the paint from. Kona Blue and clear coat.

I finally got around to taking my LH louver to my local paint shop. Should have it done in a day for $50 they claim.

Something the shop told me that I did not know....The said that L6 Kona Blue has different color shades. They wanted my VIN number to get it perfect. Anybody ever here this? Maybe different paint vendors?

Got my painted louver this week. Compared the color to the other and.... Well, there is a difference between the Ford OEM L6 Kona Blue and the paint shops L6 Kona Blue based on my VIN. I haven't decided which one matches better But they both are different. The paint shops blue seem darker. I'm sure I'm the only one who will notice.

I think the bottom line to this experience is to buy a set a primed parts and have them painted to your satisfaction if you're a perfectionist.

On a side note, while I didn't think the side windows gave me any additional visibility, I actually found myself realizing today that I used that little view through the side window as I was backing out of a parking spot.
