Rear window Louvers 240Z

<HTML>I havae just acquired a set of "older, rounded" rear window louvers supposedly to fit a 72 240Z. I don't know if I am missing mounting hardware, they don't fit properly, or I'm trying to mount them incorrectly. They seem to be designed to mount outside the hatch rubber all the way around It seems that the hinges attach with sheet metal screws directly to the hatch aabove the rubber. However, if they mount this way, they are too "short at the bottom. The bottom latch hs no place to attach to. Is there supposed to be a piece that slides under the hatch rubber, to mount the hinges to. If you know how to mount these, please help.</HTML>

RE: Rear window Louvers 240Z

<HTML>When you say rounded I assume you mean that each louvre is straight across the window and then curves to where it meets the car. I have a set of those mounted on a 77, the way you described the hinge mounting location is correct, I do not know why they would be too short, would you like a picture of mine installed?</HTML>

<HTML>Hey Al,
I have of a set of those type louvers. There are pieces which slide under the upper rubber that the hinges attache to and also two pieces which slide under the lower corners that then have a stud which sticks up that passes through the lower corner of the louver and then is nutted. If you have any fabrication skills they are really simple to make. </HTML>

<HTML>I think JCP has the type motorsports sells. I have that set also and the louvres are angled not curved.</HTML>
