Justin: If you're looking for a modern twist on a classic modification, well, then you'll wanna check out MP Concepts Rear Window Louvers that we have here today for the 2011 and newer Charger. Now, this extremely popular option will combine a one-piece molded ABS plastic build along with that smooth matte black finish offer the low $200 price point. Install is gonna be a pretty soft one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter here, guys. I would say take an hour at absolute most from start to finish. But if you hang with me for a bit, we'll walk you through that job later in the video.So, rear window louvers are definitely one of those love-it-or-hate-it modifications that tend to really appeal to Charger owners who wanna evoke some of that classic muscle car styling of the '60s and '70s. Now, seeing as though Dodge has really made certain efforts to retain portions of that retro-styling even on the new cars, I would say they work very well and definitely help nail that old-school look. Now, with that being said, the MP Concepts option that we have here on the table with me today, in my opinion, it's gonna be a slightly more modern take on that classic design thanks to the more angular look or shape, which actually works great on the newer cars like the latest Charger and Challengers.Now if you did prefer more of that OG aluminum flat street panel look, well, we do have a few options on the site that will stick to that original recipe. So, as always, guys, feel free to check out the rest of our selection back on the site before pulling the trigger. But with all that out of the way, let's take a closer look at what you can expect here with the MP Concepts option. And right out of the box, guys, you're gonna be looking at an injection-molded ABS plastic one-piece design. Now, me personally, I really like the one-piece design. And we're talking rear window louvers as it typically offers less movement compared to a bolt-together option and just makes the install and removal a much easier process. Now, this particular option does feature the matte black finish. It is a smooth finish, which, to me, I think the matte black kind of goes for more of that classic vibe. But if you do prefer a gloss option instead, MP has an exact replica to this with that gloss finish back on the site that you can grab for a few bucks more.But, guys, this is a very popular option here on the site and does have over 100 four and five star reviews with a ton of customer-submitted images which, by the way, it's always a great way to get a better idea of just how this louver might look on your own ride at home. Finally, guys, this kit does include all of the mounting plates with the 3M automotive tape needed for the installation. Now, speaking of which, guys, this is one of those installs that will really only be as good as your prep work. Now, what I mean by that is you really wanna make sure to take your time, clean that back window first thoroughly along with using the included alcohol prep pads and adhesion promoter. Trust me, guys, doing all of this and doing it correctly will go a long way. But now to give you a better idea of just what to expect with the install itself, check out our detailed walkthrough and breakdown.Man: Tools used for this install, microfiber towel, quick detailer, quarter-inch drive ratchet, eight-millimeter socket. First thing we're gonna do is I'm gonna have my louvers out on this workbench and we're gonna go through what's in the kit. This kit supplies us with some metal brackets with eight-millimeter nuts on it. Also gives us alcohol wipes and gives us our adhesive that's gonna hold our brackets to our window. Also in the kit is a activator. We're gonna use that when we get the red cover off the adhesive backing so that we can use this to make the adhesive stick harder to the window.So, now what we'll do is we'll get our metal brackets and we'll start putting our 3M double-sided tape onto our brackets. So, what we're gonna do is we're gonna take our alcohol swab that is supplied in our kit. We're gonna wipe the back of our metal bracket. Then we're gonna take our double-sided tape. We're gonna take the yellow part off, leave the red still on, and we're gonna apply that to our metal bracket, give it a good rubdown. And now we'll repeat that process. So, now we have our double-sided tape on our brackets. We're gonna install our brackets onto the backside of our louvers. I'm gonna remove our eight-millimeter nut and then just snug it up. Now you're gonna wanna finish installing the rest of your brackets.Now that we have our brackets on our louvers, what we're gonna do next is the kit is gonna come with this inhibitor, which you're going to end up using to brush onto your pads where you put your 3M adhesive tape on. It's going to make these pads stick very firmly onto the window. So, what we're gonna do is we're gonna remove our red backing from our pads. And you wanna take this with the brush. And what we're gonna do is end up brushing this onto the adhesive. Now, on our vehicle we're not gonna do that because we're gonna be removing this product, but you're gonna wanna do that and then repeat that onto each pad. So, now what I'm gonna do is start removing our red adhesive backing and you're gonna wanna repeat this to the rest of the pads.So, now we're gonna take our other alcohol swab and we're going to wipe our window. And you're gonna go up about maybe an inch or so, inch and a half, and just try to get any kind of oil or grease off. And I'll repeat this onto the other side. Now we're ready to install our louvers. All right. So, now we're gonna install our louvers. I got Joe here who's gonna give me a hand so we can line them up properly. We're gonna take them and put them on the window. Look over your way, okay?Joe: All right.Man: All right. Sounds good. And we're just gonna sit it in place and give a push-down around the edges. And our louvers are in.So now we got our louvers in place, what we're gonna do next is we're gonna remove our eight-millimeter nuts around there so we can remove our louvers and press down on our brackets. Now that we got our eight-millimeter nuts loose, we're gonna remove our louvers so that we can press down on our brackets. Now with our louvers off, we're gonna be able to press down on our brackets to make sure they're secured to our glass. So, you just go around and press down on them. And you'll wanna repeat this procedure for the rest of the brackets. Now that I have all my brackets pressed and secured to the glass, I'm gonna reinstall our louvers and then install our eight-millimeter nuts.So, now we'll install our eight-millimeter nuts. Now you're gonna just wanna repeat the same procedure for the rest of the nuts. Now that we have all our eight-millimeter nuts in place, I'm gonna tighten them with my eight-millimeter socket on my quarter-inch drive ratchet. And all you're gonna wanna do is give them a little snug. And now you're gonna wanna repeat that same procedure for the rest of the nuts. Last thing we're gonna do is install our sponge underneath our louvers. That way when you're doing 80 miles an hour on the highway, this thing is not flapping around. So, it's pretty simple. You're gonna remove the backing, put the sticky side towards the louver, lift up a little bit, keep it flat, shove it underneath, push down, and now I'm gonna repeat that on the rest of them. That wraps up this review and install of our MP Concepts Rear Window Louvers in matte black for '11 to '21 Chargers. Thanks for watching.
