SHR louvers install help in Los Angeles

Hey everyone. My wife got me a pair of the SHR louvers and I am having an incredibly hard time finding someone that'll install them for me at a resonable price. Does anybody in the LA/OC/IE know of a shop that'll get these installed? I have a 2010 Mustang GT. thanks in advance guys for the help.

I just don't have the time. I'd much rather have a shop handle it for me. Plus I live in an apartment and don't have anywhere to do the install. I know it really doesn't take much but still...

Aren't most of the quarter panel louvers attached with double sided adhesive tape?

Even if it required drilling, go to Lowes and buy a $30 drill motor and $10.00 worth of drill bits. How hard can it be?

The SHR louvers require the quarter window to be completely removed and replaced by the louver itself. Also since I have a 2010 about 3/4 of the plastic panel needs to be cut to fit the louver. I know it sounds like a pain but they look great once installed. It gives the stang a more classic look.

I've got quarter window louvers as well, but the window is still in tact, and no trimming was required. This is the first I've heard of having to remove the window and trim the interior panles for installing a set. Are they painted?

He is talking about the shr flush quater windows. It requires taking out tbe quater windows cleaning all the goop from stock window, removeing the interior and triming it. And getting it all in without leaking.... Find a glass shop my friend. I wouldn't try this unless you have a grague to put the car in to work on. Just my opinion. But they do look choice.
