...I think they got the look down pretty well, but I see no hinges to raise the louvers for cleaning the window...the originals had hinges on the top and hood pins installed to hold them down...also, the new ones are plastic, the originals were metal

Louvers are a great,functional mod (reduced heat inside the car in Summer), but I don't really care for those in the picture. The originals were metal, as posted above, and had a painted low gloss finish.

if any ine wants a good rear window louver, I have the LPI setup, and I have to admit they are a sweet, clean and aoringianl looking setup. I had Wilpak ones one for about 5 hrs and sent them back to the dealer after they started sagging after the car was parked outside for 2 hrs in the sun? So I opted for a really good quality setup, and LPI was teh best one for fit, design and finish.
