The product is excellent solid quality but yes those instruction are very unclear! But for those who are installing please cut the template out tape to the upper window. It's marked out for the hinge clips but not the other two clips at top. Two people to hold louvers on with clips attached then trace the pads out then cut out. Refit before you stick to be sure. These must align to fit correctly to fit right. The bottom clips can be pre fitted and traced before you stick. Peel back of sticky pads rub a little automotive glue then stick. I spent 4 hours to install and test run parts on before the final stick.
I received my sport slats, and they were in good condition. I opened the box to start installation, and I couldn't find ANY instructions except a template and a one page picture on how to install the support legs. I don't have a clue about the other 20 parts. I will look into this situation. Stay tuned.
I did allot of research before I bought two of these, one for my car and one for my son's car. When they arrived they were in great shape, no dings, scratches, or blemishes in the finish. We mounted the louvers without much trouble, I had expected to have some difficulties from other reviews I had read. These louvers do not rattle or make any noise at all during driving, partly due to their welded construction. Overall, we are very happy with the MRT louvers.
The instructions were terrible. It's like they were written for two separate products.
The look is great but mine did not fit like the photos here.
I'd also recommend using silicon to attached the plastic feet they give you got the mid-window supports.
The directions are very hard to grasp. The pictures are horrible. There's way too much guess work involved for something that you pay $449 for plus another $115 for shippinjg and handling !!! The template should cover the rear window from one side to the other and is made out of paper........ Today was my SECOND attempt at attaching these to my 2007 Mustang GT. They are now sitting back in my cellar. The latch pads don't seem to want to stick to the rear window. My next step is to find some epoxy / super glue / or most likely rear view mirror glue (sold at all auto parts stores)......... There's just way too much agravation involved with the installation of this product. I wish I didn't purchase these....... Next step , I'll be calling customer service !!!!
The directions are horrible. Take the time to lay everything out before you try to install and test fit it well. The template relies on you measuring a center point on the back window which may be hard for shorter people. It would have been better if the template would overlay the entire width of the window.
That being said these are pretty good quality. It's light but strong and it has clean welds. Visibility is good but I also don't have my quarter windows covered either.
All in all, happy with the purchase.
