Review & Install Video
Hey guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with my review of the Street Scene Quarter Window Louvers for all 2015 and up S550 Mustangs. The Street Scene Quarter Window Louvers are a good option for the guys out there that are looking for some quarter window louvers that will add a different type of after-market look to the appearance of their car.
While these are old-school inspired, they're different for sure and will create a unique exterior appearance. Quarter window louvers are always a quick and easy way to enhance the exterior appearance of the S550 in a non-permanent way. So they're a good option for the owners that are looking to add just a little something more, but that aren't looking to get crazy modifying.
These louvers are five-slot open louvers, so they're automatically going to look different than window scoops. They come off the window slightly to give a low-profile box look, but the slots create the louver effect. These are not a stepped louver design like the Cervini's Quarter Window Louvers are, so that's really going to set them apart. I would still say that they have a throw-back look to them to the '60s and the '70s, but they still have a look of their own. These do resemble rear window louvers, so I'd imagine that the two mods would pair nicely together.
Now the set that I have here in front of me is painted since we took these off one of our shop cars, but these will come unpainted to you. So they'll have a matte black finish, which is nice because this finish will work nicely with any color Mustang. And they're also going to blend in with the window trim around the windows, so they'll look more like they belong. I really like that the majority of quarter window scoops and louvers are off of this trend because this means that you can add these exterior mods and not have to worry about affecting anything since these install right onto the window.
Another thing that's different about these louvers here is that they will not completely black out the window, so you will be getting some light through these, or a back-seat passenger will be able to have a little bit of a view. The other thing to consider is that you can always paint-match these if you want. They're made from a flexible urethane material, and this gets the product to be strong and durable at the same time so it can hold up against the elements. So they'll arrive to you a matte black which will match any car, but if they're prepped properly, they can be paint-matched like these are.
One thing I'll mention here is that the backside of these things aren't necessarily pretty, so if you're worried about seeing the backside from inside of the car, then you always have the option of grabbing some quarter window blackout decals to hide the backside. The blackout decals cost $25, and they're just a little styling upgrade if you're worried about the look from inside the car, but you won't be getting any light through these louvers if you go that route.
As far as price, you can expect to spend just under $200 for these louvers. These are currently the least-expensive rear window louver or scoop. And like I said, they do have a different loop, so there are some other options on the site if these aren't doing it for you.
Like I mentioned earlier, another great thing about these louvers is the install. I'm not sure it can get any easier than this. You're looking at spending about a half hour, and I'm going to call it a one out of three wrenches on the scale, even though you won't need any tools to get this done. These come almost ready to install right out of the box. You will need to put some 3M tape on the back of these yourself. The only other way this could get any easier is if they had the 3M tape pre-installed on the back already.
To start the install, since these do install onto the window and not the body, you're going to want to make sure that the windows are as clean as possible. And I'm talking no bugs, no grime or any of that. Once the window is clean, apply the 3M tape to the backside of the louver. You're going to want to put the tape on the flat contact areas on the louver. After the tape is installed, remove all of the backing and line-up the louver with the window. It might be easiest to line-up with the rear corner of the glass first, and then line the louver up with the top trim while still holding the bottom corner away from the glass. Then attach the bottom and front of the louver to the glass. You really only have one chance at lining this up correctly, so just make sure you take your time. Once everything is lined up, press firmly on the louvers in the areas where the tape is touching the glass. You'll want to make sure that you create a good seal here. One other thing the mention here is that you should allow the tape to adhere for 24 hours before driving your car. If you don't let it set, the adhesion could fail, and you could be looking at your louver taking flight.
Wrapping things up here, the Street Scene Quarter Window Louvers are a different type of rear quarter window louver that have a slotted design. They aren't going to totally black the window out, and they're very easy to install. They look great by themselves or paired with other mods. And they come in matte black, but they can be paint-matched. They're going to work on all 2015 and up Mustangs, and you can check them out more online right here at AmericanMuscle.com.
