Review & Install Video
The Willpak Smooth Aluminum Rear Window Louvers is available for any '05 to '09 Mustang owner, who might be looking to give their ride a classic and aggressive, muscular styling to the exterior appearance that really changes the look of the car. This uses splints, bolts, and a lift-off design to install to your rear window to allow you to have easy access to clean it. Now the install, with that said, gets one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, and we'll talk more about that later on. The biggest difference between the Willpak option here and some of the other ones on the site is going to be the fact that it does come with a two-piece design and a high-quality aluminum finish.
Now obviously, it comes down to personal preference, but in my opinion, this one does have a smoother look. It's a lot more simplistic. It goes along with the curves here of the back window. Some of the other ones out there like the MMD ABS plastic one has a more rugged, a little bit more lines incorporated in it. But it all comes down to personal preference at the end of the day.
Now as most people tend to leave it as is right out of the box, you do have the option of taking this to a custom paint shop to get matched to your factory or a custom color of your choice. Now, you can get a little bit more of a retro styling if you keep it in the matte black finish, but obviously, you can customize it to kind of blend in more with your ride. Since this does have a higher quality aluminum finish, the price is a bit higher than the ABS plastic right around the $450 mark.
Now with that price, not only are you getting the tougher materials, but you're also getting added support on both sides and the middle underneath with these splints included already installed. With that in mind, there is a very simple installation here with those splints as well as the brackets provided for you in the kit. All you'll need is a flat head screwdriver, a soap and water mixture to clean the area on the windows, as well as the adhesion promoter for the 3M tape under the brackets. One out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here. Anybody can take care of it in about 30 minutes or so in the driveway at home.
The first thing you wanna do is completely clean off the rear window. This is the absolute most important step here because if you don't get rid of all the dust, and the 3M tape gets in contact with that before the glass, you're running the risk of the louvers actually flying off while you're in motion, which is definitely not what you want to happen. So once the windows are clean, most important step there, you wanna install the upper and lower portions of the louvers together, since it is that two-piece design. Install those using the hardware provided in the kit through the pre-drilled holes on the splints. From there, you wanna also install the brackets to each one of the holes along the edges of the louvers. Peel off the 3M tape. And with that installed loosely, you can set the louvers on your rear window and kind of align it, making sure it's centered and straight how you want it.
Once the brackets are attached to the window, pull the louvers off and add a small layer of clear silicone around the edges, which will help to seal it shut and prevent water from getting in and breaking the bond. Then you can re-attach the louvers and bolt them down. Don't overtighten it because you wanna make sure you can remove it. When it does come time to remove it, you just unbolt the brackets, lift it off the window all as one piece instead of two, and then you're able to clean the windows and pop it back on. And that just about does it for me. So if you are the owner of an '05 to '09 Mustang, you might wanna check out the Willpak Smooth Aluminum Rear Window Louvers available right here at AmericanMuscle.com.
