That is odd - naturally Iíd of imagined it was quiet to loud...rather than loud to quiet.

Minor update time, Iíve finally received the carbon fibre side window louvres and fitted them tonight. Appreciate itís a marmite mod but I really like the aggressive look.

Apologies for the filthy car which I appreciate is heresy on here, Iíll post up some better pictures when the car has had a good clean, so donít flame me on the dirty car !











Kids can still see out too... ish

Don’t dislike them to be fair, although I think I would of had them black like the roof and other trim.

I can appreciate the marmite nature but I see what you're doing and I think it's cool. Great looking car if I'm honest.

I guess it depends on your reference point for Americana and muscle cars

Do they just bond onto the glass??

I kind of like them, but I think maybe you need to get the insides painted black.

I did think about this for a while but I wanted to get a carbon fibre theme going, with the rear spoiler CF and Iím looking at getting the mirror caps in CF too. Hence going for the louvres on CF

I did consider getting the roof in carbon fibre wrap but didnít want any fake CF on the car so went for gloss black. I intend to get the roof painted gloss black eventually but will get my moneyís worth out of the wrap first.

I love the classic mustang look so this is my homage to the 60ís look
