Textures

We have several plastic textures available to order.
The STANDARD is the most famous building, which is more than 50 years old. 
The CLASSIC has a less pronounced structure than the standard. It has a beautiful matte reflection at a distance of more than a meter.
FOR PAINTING – the only smooth structure in our collection. There are small irregularities on it that simulate damage to the plastic from time.
BLACK CHROME is a black shiny surface like a mirror.
BLACK FRIDAY – has minor damage, photos on request.

Once upon a time...

The rear window louvers first appeared in the 1965 Lamborghini Miura. It was partly a design element (comprising the then-innovative engine, installed in the middle instead of glass), and a functional element (providing at least some rear visibility). Since then, rear louvers have gradually become a fashion statement.

The “big break” in the rear louver area came in 1969 when Ford’s chief designer Larry Shinoda made the now-iconic Mustang, Boss 302 and Boss 429 a staple, as well as the Mach 1 Mustang. It was stylish but leak out less heat into the cabin as the Mustangs had a fastback roof with large horizontal rear windows letting in a lot of sunlight. Even with the air conditioner on, those huge rear windows kept the sports cars warm pretty quickly. Since many of the sports cars also had a black interior, the heat from these rear windows could dramatically increase the inside temperature.

In the 1970s and 1980s, the fashion for louvers grew. Some vehicles came with louvers as a standard feature. The DeLorean DMC-12 had standard plastic rear window louvers. The louvers added the futuristic design to the car, but since the engine was at the rear of the car, the louvers helped prevent hot air from entering the cabin.

Who are we?

We are maniacs who love rare and beautiful tuning of old cars. For several years now we have been creating copies of such plastic parts. We love to make old parts strictly adhering to all visible parts and dimensions. And sometimes we modify parts for better fit. We regularly test new materials and components to see how you can use them to maintain the great design of your vehicles.”I love to restore the old tuning! If we managed to get an old part in a broken condition – this is a huge fortune. Plastic does not live long. But sometimes you have to re-create parts based on old photos.”

How we created the Louvers BMW replica

We created this part without having the original part on hand. We just had an old photo. And we had to draw a simple drawing on the computer in order to compare it with the photo. Then a 3D model was created from this picture. And only then the matrix was made for production.

What is our Louvers made of?

We make our parts from abs plastic. It holds its shape well and does not depend on weather conditions, unlike fiberglass. And unlike other plastics, it is a true three-component composite. Acrylic, styrene and butadiene are well known. But their varieties in the ABS work in a very interesting way. Acrylic and styrene form a three-dimensional lattice responsible for rigidity. Butadiene molecules are inside this lattice. And they are responsible for the elasticity of plastic. In terms of fire resistance, impact resistance, frost resistance and chemical resistance, it bypasses polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene and other types of widespread plastics.

What else?

On special request, we can make the louvers of a transparent material.
