Hey, guys. Adam here with americanmuscle.com, and today we're taking a closer look at and installing the SpeedForm Quarter Window Louvers in the Matte Black Finish, available for '08 and newer Challengers. You should be checking this out if you're looking for a classic retro muscle car-inspired styling for the side profiles of your '08 and newer Challenger. This guy here is made using a five-slot design, a very classic look with injection-molded ABS plastic, and a matte black finish. The injection-molded material means it's exactly molded to the shape of your quarter windows so it fits really snug and really tight up against the glass, right around where the weatherstripping is. Now the injection-molded ABS is flexible, it's impact-resistant. It's made for the exterior styling pieces for Challengers and automotive vehicles. It's something you see very commonly in aftermarket categories. Now, the matte black finish here is actually really nice. It's got a pretty smooth finish to it. If you're looking for something that's got a little bit of a glossier finish, there is a gloss black version in the category as well, which would match very closely to the factory black paint color. I personally really like the mate black. It blends in really well with the weatherstripping around the windows.You can get the pair for right around 100 bucks, making it an extremely affordable mod for the exterior of your vehicle. The install, I'm giving one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. You can knock this out in under 30 minutes from start to finish in the driveway at home with very limited hand tools. All you're really gonna need for this is a knife to trim the 3M automotive bonding tape, a squirt bottle with a soap and water mixture, and a clean microfiber or an alcohol wipe. Now the 3M is how it's going to apply. 3M automotive bonding tape is specifically made for the exterior of vehicles. So if applied correctly, it will stay on your window for the long haul until you wanna remove it. Now, if you wanna add some extra security, you can use adhesion promoter. We're not gonna be using that just because it's going back to stock after this video. But, again, if it's something that gives you a little bit of added peace of mind, you can definitely pick that up separately, For the install here, I'm gonna be showing you the entire process from start to finish. The most important part is cleaning the glass. So I'll talk about that in a second. So let's get started.Tools used in the install include a squirt bottle with soap and water mixture, and a microfiber or an alcohol wipe, and a knife.First step, of course, is to assemble the 3M tape to the backside of the louvers. Now, we have it face down on the foam padding that it comes with in the packaging just to protect the finish. What you're basically gonna do is grab a knife, have that handy. You're gonna peel off some of that roll and you're gonna start around the edges and just apply it to the inside edge on the backside of a louver. You're gonna run the entire length of each side then around that side and then this, and, of course, have the knife there to cut it to size. Okay. Repeat that for all of that. All right. Once you have that taken care of, repeat that for the other louver.Next, the most important step here is to make sure you're cleaning off the window itself. You wanna grab a soap and water mixture in a squirt bottle and a clean microfiber. If you don't have these, an alcohol wipe will do the trick as well. So we're just gonna hit that window lightly. And you're really just focusing on the edges where the 3M tape is going to apply, but it's a good idea just to clean the entire window while you're here. This is gonna be, again, the most important step. You wanna make sure you're getting rid of all of the dirt and dust that would prohibit a good bond from the 3M and the glass. If you want a little more added security, you can use adhesion promoter although it's not required. We're not gonna be using that because we're going back to stock after this video, but it's just worth mentioning that it could add some stability to it. All right. From here, ready to apply.Now, the first step I like to do is peel back each one of the strips a couple of inches just to hang over the edge so they're easily accessible from the outside. That way you can start in the corner here by lining that up. That's gonna help you line it up to the glass, bring it down to the bottom, line it up to the weatherstripping. Bring it up to the top. So all the way around, you know it's completely matched up to where it needs to be. Stick down on the 3M that's exposed, peel back the strips once you like where it's positioned. From there, put firm and even pressure all around. Repeat on the other side, and you're good to go.That's gonna wrap up my review and install for the SpeedForm Quarter Window Louvers in the Matte Black Finish, available for the '08 and newer Challenger.
