Rear window louvres

Thinking about adding louvres to my '13 Camaro. Anyone put them on that has had any problems or any negative comments? wondering about always having to take them off to clean the rear window.

Garage
I don't have them, I'm on the fence. 83Hokie should be along, I'm pretty sure he has a set and likes them very much. He has a good looking ride.

Thanks hcso617. Yes, I like mine a lot. I can't say I have gotten any bad comments, but there are a number of people that generically state, they don't like louvers on a Camaro and they consider them "Mustang'ish" for some reason. Mine are from MRT, and have clips that hold them down .. relatively easy to unclip and lift them ... mine also have "legs" that hold them up when cleaning the window. The only problem I ever had was when one of the tabs came loose and I put it back on .. it was a little out of alignment and made it a beach to close back down ... got it re-aligned and its fine now. Lastly make sure they are "clamped" before you open or close the trunk!!! I learned that the hard way. I believe I have pictures in the build thread.

One other thing - when they are "clamped" down and you open the truck, is there lots of clearance between the lid and the louvres?

Hello

The MRT window louvers have been very popular with the 5th Gen Camaro's , and look great on the vehicles . They are constructed of aircraft grade aluminum and are powder coated but can be painted vehicle paint code color match for an additional $250 .

I've personally installed several of these louvers without any issue's and they are all still on the vehicles to this day. The louver attaches with two hinge pads up top and two latch pads at the bottom to raise the louver up for easy cleaning . There are also prop rods to hold the louver up when cleaning or accessing the rear glass . The entire install is an easy DIY install but takes a little time for proper prep and installation about a half hour total .

If you have any question please feel free to contact me anytime at the shop and I will be more than happy to help you out and answer any questions or concerns .

There is plenty of clearance between the trunk lid and the rear window louver we kept that in mind when we designed out window louvers .
