Which quarter louvers?

Hey guys, just wanted your input on which quarter louvers to get. For what it's worth mine is white with black rally stripes.

Those aren't louvers, they're gills. Louvers are what goes into your rear windows.

I don't really like them, but that is just my opinion.

Definition: Any of a series of narrow openings framed at their longer edges with slanting, overlapping fins or slats, adjustable for admitting light and air while shutting out rain.

so technically it can be classified as a Louver.

They look like fake stick-ons.....oh, perhaps that's because they are fake stick-ons. Just my humble opinion....

I personally would just do vinyl shading instead of stick on grills.

Don't get those retro USA ones, they are cheap plastic and the paint flakes off easily.
I went with the Emblempros polished stainless style 2 trim accented by me with black 1/4" pinstripe tape.

I bought the GM one's for the transformer edition. I was gonna put those on, but thought I would want the ones like the 69's.
