It's Joe from AmericanMuscle and today, we're going to be taking a closer look at the MP Concepts Rear Window Louver in gloss black, fitting all '15 and newer Fastback Mustangs. Now, this is going to be a great option for you if you're looking for a modern take on some classic '60s Mustang styling, all at a budget-friendly price tag.So what do we have going on here with the MP Concepts Rear Window Louver? First things first, let's talk build quality, and this one is going to be made out of durable, yet lightweight, automotive-grade ABS plastic. You can see that the design here basically bends down the middle slats, allowing access to the third brake light, allowing your Mustang to remain street legal. This one is going to be finished in gloss black which is going to be a perfect match for the rear deck lid panel and any blackout build in general. If you really wanted to take this to the next level though, you could throw in a pair of side window louvers as well.Now, if the gloss black is not for you, MP Concepts does understand that and they also have the same rear window louver available in matte black as well. Now, one huge plus about the design of this rear window louver in particular is that it's held on to its mounting brackets with 8-millimeter nuts. So all you have to do to remove this is take off those 8-millimeter nuts. You could pop those right off, clean underneath and drop it right back on in a couple of minutes. And that is a really nice touch. Also in the kit, you do get a few extra of those foam pads if you do need them for whatever reason. You also get a couple of extra mounting brackets and 8-millimeter nuts included in the kit. If anything ever happens, you do have a few replacements in the box with this rear window louver. And I always think spare parts are a nice touch.Pricing for this one, it's gonna drop in right around that $250 mark which, simply put, makes this the most budget-friendly rear window louver in the category. The install, not gonna be that bad either. I'm going to give this an easy one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Should take you about an hour, at most, with most of that time spent on cleaning up the rear window area. So, without any further ado, let me show you what tools you'll need and how it's done.Tools you'll need for this install will include an 8-millimeter socket, a ratchet, and alcohol pads, and adhesion promoter will come included in the kit.So, over by the table, you can see I have everything laid out in front of me. This is going to be the rear window louver. Obviously, I have a little bit of packaging down to make sure I don't scratch up that piano black. Over here, we have all the parts. This is what we're going to start with. It's a little metal plate with the stud on top. We had some 3M double-sided tape on the back. We're also going to grab those 8-millimeter nuts, and that is going to secure these to the window louver. And then we're going to peel off the tape and drop it in place. It really is that simple. You can see we also have some adhesion promoter, as well as some alcohol wipes. And these pads we'll touch on a little bit later. First things first, we're going to get these installed.So you can see that stud is a little bit offset. When you're dropping this in, you want to make sure that it's inboard and not hanging over the edge like that. So we're going to give that a 180. From the bottom, I'm just going to make sure it's nice and parallel with the side. And now, you can thread on that 8-millimeter nut.And there's eight more places where we're going to have to do that. So we're just going to hit all those right now.So now, we have all nine of these installed on the rear of our louver. At this point, you want to go back to your Mustang, clean the rear glass, make sure you're working with a nice, clean surface area to allow this adhesive to stick as best as it can. Then you can come back with the louver and peel off all the backing, and drop this in place.Now, these foam bricks, they do have a little bit of adhesive on the back. And what these are for is they're going to install them on the underside of the fins, just to make sure they don't rattle against the glass. They're actually pretty high up to begin with, but this is a nice measure to make sure they don't.That's going to do it for my review and install of the MP Concepts Rear Window Louver in gloss black, fitting all '15 and newer Fastback Mustangs. As always, guys, thank you so much for watching. Keep it right here at AmericanMuscle, for all things Mustang.

Looks good, adhesive is weak and plastic is flimsy
I tried to make this work. Took 3 installs with 3 different adhesives and just couldn't get it to completely stick all the way around. Sure, I got it to the point where it wouldn't come off but one corner or two would undo and cause rattling. Save the money, invest in something nicer, please. Let my misfortune help you.Helpful (1)

Absolutely terrible! Don’t even consider buy this plastic junk. I was excited to receive my package and come to find out it was broken just from the delivery. I doubt it’d be able to hold going a 100mph. DONT BUY!!!Helpful (1)

Disappointed on the way the Louvers are made, the design will NOT allow a proper fit!! It has to be permanently glued, or you can NOT open your trunk (unless you hold down on the bottom, next to the trunk) the double stick tape is a danger of Louvers loosening and being blown off while driving. A must of extra time for tape to set in warm temps, still mine are not holding! I even re-installed with a better 3M tape!Helpful (0)

Installation was easy. It stays on, as long as you follow installation instructions. There is definitely a rattle. My exhaust is loud, so I don't hear it much, but my daughter says its loud enough. I have not yet installed the sponge/pillow objects that were included, because I was just trying to get used to the car itself and the modified rear-view. It is a good looking product in my eyes. If this is the look you want, this will be the look you get.Helpful (2)

Rear Window Lovers
At first I loved these lovers. Since I have installed them they have cracked and broke. Not for sure I would buy them again. The tape that was sent with them did not work. I had to go and buy stronger tape to affixed them to the back window.Helpful (1)

WARNING! DO NOT BUY
If you’re thinking about getting this because of the low price just DONT. do not pay attention to any good reviews for this thing. it will come to you either broken or deformed at the top. the materials are flimsy and break super easy. The tops is too bowed and glue won’t even hold it down. spend an extra hundred or two and get quality louvers.Helpful (5)
Is it strong enough to take through a car wash?
Are the louvers paintable?
With prepping and priming, yes these are paintable.
Kindly inform me the packing size and weight. Thank in advance.
is the gloss black painted on or is it made like that?
A gloss black finish is indeed applied.
I bought this a couple months ago, but I messed some mounting pads during installation, is there any way to get some mounting pads? So, I could have some extras on hand
As long as they are installed properly, they should be fine without any issues.
