AS SOON AS I PUT THIS ON MY CAR, I GOT A LOT OF ATTENTION AND COMPLIMENTS ON HOW THIS LOOKS GREAT ON MY CAR!!!Helpful (1)

I'm not sure why but the fit on my car of these was completely garbage. Not only does the trunk get hung up at the bottom edge every time I try to open the trunk but at the top the whole set of louvers seems to crinkle up in the middle and wont sit flat at all. I thought these particular type of louvers would fit better that the aluminum ones I had ordered before from AM but they did not. The overall appearance would be better mostly if they would just sit flush at the top center. After this experience along with other past experiences with their louvers I would not purchase this style again and I will go with the MRT hinged louvers like I had on my 99 GT.Helpful (0)

Nice fit, only laid it on there to see what it would look like, for its too cold to put it on right now...It would of been a great deal nicer if it were pre painted to match your car, if you wanted it to be. But, its nice, I'm sure it will be nice driving with the ABS, I've had the aluminum ones in the past and they rattle...Helpful (2)

Disappointed in the quality of the hardware with this manufacturer. The first hardware rusted in less than 3 months and streaked rust down the louvers. American Muscle was fantastic at sending replacement hardware however the new hardware is rusting right out of the package. I did not reinstall with new hardware. Went to hardware store and bought my own hardware. Also when replacing rusted hardware, two anchor posts broke off. NOTE: Looks great but hardware poor quality. Also vibrates at highway speeds.Helpful (3)

Rear side window louvers
I may have the review on the rear window louver and the rear side window louvers mixed up, but this is about the side louvers. We bought side louvers colour coded for the 2012 Pony car, Kona Blue on a USA trip in May 2019 and shipped to NZ. We only got to fit them in September 2019 and the paint match was perfect. They are held on by Double sided tape and fit like a glove. the appearance is great. Very impressed as they are not common In NZ.Helpful (1)
What do you suggest for severe, louver to glass rattles at highway speeds? I lined the complete peripheral under-edge, and the top under-edges of the first two louver vanes, with black 1/8 x 3/8 firm sponge tape [ACE Hardware product #57625; $2.99 per package]. It took two, 10ft packs. It's completely hidden, and since it worked so well to eliminate the problem, I thought I'd also mention it as a solution for other customers.
Hello! Thank you for your advise on fixing this issue. We do appreciate your input and we are glad you were able to creatively fix the rattling you were experiencing. And I'm sure other customers appreciate that bit of info as well!
Where can i get replacement brackets for these? I managed to lose all but two of mine when i took them off to switch cars.
I'm sorry that you lost the majority of those brackets, however we do sell replacement sets that will work. Just give us a call at 1-844-494-7745, and one of our customer service representatives can set up with a new hardware kit!
Vibrating on window What is everyone doing for vibrations. I can hear it against the rear window. I have tightened everything. Any ideas? Still love the way they look.
I used a set of thick black rubber washers (actually common kitchen faucet seats) and pushed them on between the louvers and the arcorn nuts. It look better with than without them (looks more finished), takes up some of the extra space or gap I felt was between the nut and the louvers (on some - could be a source of some of the rattles or vibration) where the stud bottoms out because its an acrorn style nut. Also with the washers or faucet seats being nice an thick it added some resistance where you could snug the nuts just enough to start to compress the rubber to avoid over tightening.
Is it recommended to install the brackets, wait 24 hours for them to seal and stick correctly, and then install the louvers? Couldn't you just use a blow dryer set on cool to speed up the drying process so you can install the louvers after a couple hours of waiting for the brackets to have a strong stick?
The brackets in the MMD ABS Rear Window Louvers should be applied in 70 degree weather or high with no to low humidity and remain in those conditions for at least 48 hours. After those 48 hours, you may then install the louvers and drive the vehicle. Some enthusiasts opt to wait less time, and it does work sometimes but we would recommend letting the adhesive adhere properly.
how much is vision obstructed and get these be painted? how much is visibility obstructed? and can these be painted?
Vision isn't obstructed too much looking out, but looking in is hard. It also keeps car cooler because it shades the entire back seat. Don't know about painting, I've had mine for 3 years and use Mother's Back to Black to keep it looking good.
While you could take it through the car wash, I wouldn't recommend it simply because you're not going to get your rear window cleaned. It's best to just pop it off and toss it in the trunk so your rear window gets cleaned and then just wipe the louver off after the fact.
No, using the rear window defroster will not affect the 3M tape and will stay intactduring the colder weathers with the defroster.
You can definitely have these installed in the winter months. We have not had an issue with these rear window louvers in colder and snowy weather.
Unfortunately for the MMD ABS Rear Window Louvers we do not offer any stronger bolts or reinforcements, But in the event you were to have issues with the hardware included breaking over time we do offer replacement hardware.
The MMD ABS Rear Window Louvers can go through the car wash, the issue would more so be damaging the brackets than the tape holding up. It is highly recommend to remove them if you are going through a car wash.
Hello! Please give us a call at 1-844-494-7745, and we can get you new hardware for your MMD ABS Rear Window Louvers.
They're very close in color match
This can cause an issue with the adhesive proper the vehicle.
American Muscle does not offer pre-painted versions of this product.
