Nice looking stang. You can check my pix for my louvers. I have the roush style and love em. As for the blind spot mine are completely covered so no sight at all through them. Its not a huge issue tho since our mirrors have those mini ones to help cover blind spots anyway

Can't remember where I saw it, but someone makes a flush fit type rear quarter windo louver. The drawback to it is that you have to remove your quarter glass to install this setup, as it has the glass and louver as once piece. The pros: better visability, and still get the louver effect/looks.

Expensive though.

That sounds to complicated for me.I'd end up messing something up for sure.

Those are the louvers that are on the cobra jet. They're by silver horse racing.

I keep looking at pics of those SHR louvers. Am I correct in that the slats extend inside the car? If so, doesnt it look like hell on the inside?

Silver Horse! That's the one! I like the flush mount they have; clean look, and good visibilty. You don't completely loose the windows for seeing out. But the original glass has to come out to install these. Most shy away because of it.
Memory is the second thing to go with age. I forgot what the first was...

Lol, nah. That's the pic from the eBay auction on the link I posted.

I imagine those would be a little more expensive to paint because of all the prep work. That's probably why AM doesn't sell them.

They can be bought pre-painted from Silver Horse (mentions this on their site as "custom ordered"). They start at $179.00 un-painted. Head on over to their web site:

SHR Flush-Mount Quarter Vent Louver 2010+ (pair)

My findings were for UN-PAINTED....You will need to go to their site (link above) and request a qoute under "custom order".

Oh I see, it's $354 for a painted set. That's not bad at all. I'd have to reconsider...
