Tint and Louvers today, hate comments welcome

did some tint today, went pretty well, just did 35%. I did it myself, I don't ever hire anyone. I have done a few cars in the past.that rear window is one of the most challenging I have done.

also installed the MRT rear louvers..I know they are not a crowd favorite here. They remind me more of my old 3rd gen, and keep a lot of sun out. That being said, I can handle the constructive criticism..

Nice job! Looks good and I like the louvers; have some installed on mine as well. Besides liking the retro look, the do help keep the heat down, especially living in the desert.

Bro, these MRT Louvers are a win... beautiful finish, very sturdy and well built. Easy install... get lots of looks and compliments! Pricey but worth it.

I also like the louver on certain colors and this happens to be one of them. Nicely done.

I didn't htink I would ever put louvers on my camaro. The last time I had them on a car was my 67 2+2 fastback Mustang. I was really pickey about the ones I wanted after a lot of sole searching I didn't want anything but metal and a set I could raise up instead of having to take them off to clean the rear window. I know they are a little costly but I did get a good deal.

I have louvers for mine in the garage. But, 2 of the nylon nuts went missing and they want $90 for a replacement kit....that is half of what I paid for the whole thing.

I do like them. They look great on your car also. I got mine from phastek, paid full price. But I do like the ability to lift and clean under and the fact they are aluminum.

Thxs for the positive compliments guys well appreciated. They are a little pricey but for me the quality and ease of the 2 leg props I think they are unbeatable for quality.

Welker2 I have been thinking the same thing about getting louvers because I too live in the desert. My stock tint isn't helping much in this 110* heat.
