Sure thing. The installation looks pretty straight forward... it comes in two large pieces and some hardware. The pieces bolt together and have hinges on one side and latches on the other. The instructions do say it must be around 70 degrees which sucks, I haven't seen a 70 degree day around here in months.

Installed the CDC rear window louver in November. Posted the trials and tribulations that went along with the install. Not too bad - just read the instructions carefully and find the true center of the top of with rear window. The template is right on the money. The clips on the edges (one each side) can be a bit testy but went on with a few easy taps from a rubber mallet. Believe another mustanger used a grinder to take a bit off the top window edge clips to ease installation; when you look at the clips and try a test fit you will know what I am talking about. Believe he also used some flat black paint on the nuts/bolts that hold the upper and lower louver sections together. The louvers really cool off the back seat area and rear visability is unaffected. I always imagine it flying off as I go down the road but the 3M adhesive really sticks. Good luck and enjoy!
