rear window louvers on hatch?
Posted 16 June 2006 - 07:08 PM
i`m going to try either making them or adapting some from another car. any suggestions? is their any other cars out their with a simular sized rear window?

They made them for wagons too - just not in the US.

they really save the top of the rear seat...
I'm working with a guy on a possible conversion from another car, but I'vebeen told the length difference between the top and bottom edges islarger than "normal"

Here's a pic:
I snagged a 2nd set from the same junkyard. I think i have them at my parents house... or maybe I took them to the dump. I got them years ago, and couldnt sell it.

One thing to consider, after installing the louvers my hatch struts were no longer able to hold the rear hatch up... with the added wieght. Also, the thing liked to rattle. It was hinged at the top and whenever i hit a bump it would kinda swing and smack into the hatch.
I didnt care, as the in-car temps dropped considerably after installing the louvers.

Cool. Also compare the angle of the Cavalier's window to your window. They should be at about the same angle.
i found some from an early cavalier that are very close. the only measurement that is way off is the height, but if you cut 2 or 3 louvers off, it probly would work great on a hatch......
