Referring to the "BIG" rear window, not the quarter windows. Thanks!

If you can find anyone who has them available yet let me know. As far as I've heard NOBODY has them...yet.

Go to www.visuslouvers.com . That's the company that makes them. They have links to a few distributors. Only 2 or 3 of them have the 05 louvers I think. A Google or Froogle search will also turn up some results. I'm still comtemplating whether or not to do this.

Team Shinoda has a good looking rear louver.

My freind had 'em on his 1977 Cobra, although it looked ok for that era, I won't put such a thing on my 2005. Besides, they collect dirt and wind fallout, and discolor over time. Just my experience.

Seems to be a supply problem with these from Visus.

Visus makes the best quality louvers, but it is basically a one man show supplying this product.

California Mustang is supposed to be getting the first batch when they are finally done.

MRT and California Mustangs are getting them from the same source/manufacture, Visus... I originally ordered mine from California Mustang back in January, with a ship date of 1st week of April... when the first week of April rolled around, I was told they would not be ready until the last week of May or the first week of June... so I canceled my order with California Mustang and found MRT had the exact same thing... they got first dibs as they are the ones that used them at the SEMA show on their 05 show car...
Most all of the ones out there are getting them from the same source...

Straight and true I don't have any problems with them at all.. better than the stock 215's that come on it for sure... With the wider sidewalls it has a smoother ride then the low profile tires, but of course they are not as good as those of course...

I like the white lettering on the tires Winterhawk, I have been wanting to see an 05 with those, now I have and it is good:thumbsup I would lose the decal on the spoiler along with the 4.0 badges and the mustang stripe on the rocker as your ride is getting to be to busy looking IMHO. The blackout decal on the back panel and the louvers look good to me. Just my 2 cents.
