Justin: All right. So if you ever wondered to yourself, man, I really dig the look of rear window louvers but I wish there was something just a little bit more modern, well, BakDraft said, "Say no more fam, I've got you" with their rear window louver for all 2015 and newer Fastback Mustangs. Now the BakDraft option is gonna be made from marine-grade plastic, which is gonna be super UV resistant and give it more of a glossy or shiny finish, all for right around 500 bucks. Installation on the other hand is gonna be a peel and stick job, guys. So expect a soft one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter here with a little bit more detail on that later in the video.All right, guys, well here we go, right? This is certainly gonna be the definition of a love it or hate it part that I'm sure everybody has some very strong feelings about. But if you want to know more about this thing then hang out with me for a little bit and we'll talk about it before showing you how to get it installed later on.So to me this is gonna be a very modern interpretation if you will of the classic window louvers for the rear window and one that I will say works probably a little bit better on the modern cars like the S550 because of the very angular nature of the car. Now I feel the BakDraft options here do feature more of that kind of angular design. In fact, if you want to get a better idea of how this is gonna look, there is a ton of pictures on the site from fellow S550 owners who have actually pulled the trigger on this thing and installed it. So if you want to get a better idea of how it's gonna look on your ride at home feel free to check those out if you haven't done so already on the product page.As far as your construction is concerned, well BakDraft did design these things using the CAD data from Ford, so it's gonna fit the back window perfectly on your Fastback S550 without any weird gaps or overlap or anything like that. Now, the louver itself again has been made here in the USA from that marine-grade ABS plastic and they've used that because it's going to be a lot more resistant in the sun, not fade on you over the years and it has been given a very bright or shiny gloss finish as opposed to the other options in the category which typically incorporate more of a textured matte or satin finish.Outside of the texture, I will say the more modern design will certainly allow for slightly better visibility out of portions of your rear window compared to the more retro styles out there but will certainly stick up a little bit more in comparison, so just something to consider there. Now the louver does get backed by BakDraft's lifetime structural warranty in case of any structural issues over the years.But now we want to show you just what it takes to get the louver installed again on your S550 at home. Peel and stick job but the biggie here is certainly going to be the prep. So you want to make sure the area is nice and clean, you use your alcohol promoter, your adhesion promoter to make sure this thing doesn't go anywhere on you over the years. But to give you a better idea of how everything is gonna go down here's that walkthrough along with a few tips to help you along the way.Man: The tools you used for this install are glass cleaner, a microfiber cloth, and the provided adhesion promoter. So the first step of this install is gonna be making sure that you're starting with a clean surface, it's free from any debris. I'm gonna use a little bit of window cleaner and a microfiber cloth, make sure the surface is nice and clean. So I'm just gonna get started by peeling the tabs for the double stick tape on the back and folding them over the front. I'm not gonna peel them all the way so that I can get everything lined up and if I need to, I can make my adjustments before I peel the rest of the tape.Before you stick the window into place, we're gonna use the provided adhesion promoter and go right around the edges of the glass. This'll help make everything stick really well. Now I've got an extra set of hands, we're just gonna put this in place and line it up with the glass. Once you're happy with the alignment of your window louver on the rear glass, you can start peeling your tape slowly and apply some pressure. Make sure everything stays in place while you do.And that's gonna wrap up this review and install for the BakDraft Rear Window Louver for your '15 to '20 Mustang. Thanks for watching.
