So I found somebody to make some quarter window Louvers for the Mach. Just got the prototype in, I will post pictures today. Just want to see if there is any interest in getting some louvers for our Machs.

Re: Quarter panel Louvers

Are you talking FENDER (1/4 PANEL) as you stated, or 1/4 WINDOW louvers?

Re: Quarter panel Louvers

Does it have a smooth or rough finish. Are they paintable?? Also, are there any slot cutouts in the louvers??

Re: Quarter panel Louvers

At the moment it's only a prototype. The gentleman that's making them said he can have them done in a smooth abs finish. The slats are cut out. As soon as I get all the feed back to him he will start to make them. Not sure on price or anything yet, but I will let him know that he can sell several of them right away and maybe we can work out some discount for the registry. So keep the comments coming so we can get a product that will look good and have our touches to it.

They look good, thanks for taking the lead on this project and bringing it to the forum!

Since they are still pre-production, here is what Iíd like to see in the final design.

The front edge and the top match and follow the shape of the car perfectly. The bottom and the rear edges do not. Rather than keep each louver perfectly symmetrical, modify each louverís shape slightly so that they extend and match the lower and rear edge of the body lines.

Also, instead of that smooth edge all around the louver, how about an edge that looks like more like a rail? (for a finished, high end look)

And I agree; a smoother paintable finish would be preferable, so they look more like aluminum louvers.

Just my humble opinion... thanks again!

Re: Quarter panel Louvers

I do like them but my one concern would be that being they are slatted that going at a descent speed at 65-75 mph that they might come undone and fly off.

Re: Quarter panel Louvers

I received a response from the guy that's making the quarter panel louvers. This is what he sent.

"The design is supposed to slide beneath the sail panel a bit to lock it in place. As far as the material I can do one in the textured ABS (what was shipped) or smooth ABS plastic that you can paint. Either way the material is stable and up to 220 degrees, and is impact resistant. As for the drainage I recommend leaving a few gaps along the bottom edge trim tape for water drainage.....thats all thats really needed. As for the design I'm thinking of pulling the bottom edge lower to keep it more level with the bottom edge. The last one farthest back looks a bit off too but I would like your opinion as well as anyone you might know that would be interested."


I will be emailing him this evening with all your comments and recommendations so he can start a production on these quarter panel louvers. I will also find out how much these louvers will cost.
