Can anyone help me name this type of mod? They're not actually "vents" as they don't actually let air in/out of anything. (Look at rear window).

I first fell in love with them when I played GTA III for the first time - they were on all Mafia Sentinel cars.

Also, any advice on how to make them (or where to get them from) would be really appreciated!


Thanks :aviator

Wow! Not seen those for a while. Back "In The Day" they were all the go for people with a Mk1 Capri.

a quick "Google" and I found this place. http://www.willpak.com/products/rear-window-louvers/ . It's a shame they're in the US.

I made a set for my old hyundai. It was pretty simple. Find a rear window visor like this- http://www.carbodykitstore.com/dodge-ch ... 4AodgUcA9Q

you can use cheap ones, I bought 5 cheap ones. I then ran two strips of lexan down the edge of my rear window and attached the visors. It took some cutting and 3m usage, but it held up good. I got my visors off of junkyard civic hatchbacks for $5 american each.
