Thanks.
The 3M tape only makes contact with the window, it doesn't touch the body.

Kreepy X... I got my Stage 3 louvers installed and they look amazing, I would definitely recommend them to anyone interested in getting louvers. I know I said I would make a thread with pics once I got them installed but it has been raining here literally every single day for the past 1 1/2 - 2wks..no joke. I'd like to take pics when the car is all cleaned up and right now it's a mess. Lol... actually as I am writing this I can hear it starting to rain once again. If it ever stops I'll wash the car and take some pics so you can see them.

Sounds great! I really can't wait to see them. I still haven't bought mine yet because i want to wait and see yours first. No hurry tho, take your time

And Mark25, Vantage is correct. They only stick to the window glass. Thanks again guys!

vantage, thanks for the info...I think I screwed up. The louvers I'm interested are the ones that sltwtr (from Mystic,CT) has...called Afterthoughts Auto 1/4 Window Louvers. Those louvers definitely cover the gap between the window and the window frame...but they look like they must have tape touching the body...

Mark25, The Afterthoughts Auto 1/4 window louvers attach with the 3M tape on the window only. They need a day at a decent temp to stay put and an occasional pressing over the next couple of days. I have had the white one (blue stripes) with those louvers on at 135mph and they are still there. Just be real precise where you want them before you stick them on, once they are on you will need a fishing line to slide them off (gets between the tape and glass without scratching anything - sawing motion) Good Luck. I love the way they look and have had uncountable compliments on the car. Look forward to some pics of other 1/4 window installs. Rick

Rick, thanks for the info...I do think your louvers really look great!
BTW, I'm originally from Middletown. Went to Xavier and then to Trinity C. in Hartford. My wife and I love taking trips back to CT. We especially love Foxwoods, seeing the Fall sites, etc. And, of course, a quick little trip to Mystic is always in order (Mystic Pizza, Abotts, etc.).

I will definitely see if I can talk the Mrs. into purchasing those louvers. She, of course, prefers the "stock" look. It will take a little bit of convincing...your pic (and any other pics you post) will help.

Mark25, So a local person escaped to Virginia Beach, good for you. I will have other pictures beginning of next week. Need to rely on good weather and a clean car not always in the same or right order. The one thing these louvers do is change the look of the car to a more 60's style. I also noticed she looks smaller once the 1/4 windows are covered and painted in the same color as the main color. Don't know why it seems smaller it just does which makes it a better looking more exotic car. I am an old owner of a 1965 GT 350 (wish I still owned it) and it looks more like that than anything else. Glad to have someone familiar with Abbotts (closed for the season now) and Mystic Pizza on the forum.
The Bank just across from Mystic Pizza was robbed yesterday, you probably know it as well. Good luck and look for the new pics on Monday. They should convince your wife it really makes the car look different, unique and just plain great !!!. Rick :eyepoppin

Rick, I'll be sure to check out the pics!

I'm not that familiar with the bank across from Mystic Pizza...it's funny I lived 22 years of my life in CT and I went to Mystic maybe a couple of times...it's going to FOXWOODs that allowed me to visit it more often and more recently. During the summer, while I was growing up, my parents would rent cottages in Westbrook and Clinton. One thing about being here is that I can pretty much keep my cars detailed almost all year round...very little, if any, snow (my other "fun/weekend" car is an '01 Vette Coupe).

I retired from the Navy back in '97 and my wife retired from teaching a couple of years ago. Of course, I continue to work for the military (this time as a contractor...no uniform)...

I'll be looking forward to seeing the pics.

BTW, have you ever been to Custy's (All you can eat lobster buffet)...I've never been, but I've seen the advertisements...any good?).

Kreepy X....

I just came in from washing my car/taking pics so I'm going to make a thread now in the '2005+ Talk' section with pics so you can see the Stage 3 louvers. This is the first time I saw my car clean with them on and they look amazing.... Check out the thread.
