rear window louvers
« on: January 06, 2013, 09:48:44 AM »
I emailed Willpak again today(2 years since the last time) about possibly making rear window louvers for the regular hatch for the Pinto and Bobcat. I told them that I was a member of the Ford Pinto Car Club of America and there was a pretty good demand for the louvers if they were made and available at a decent price.
It would really have a much bigger impact on them if everyone that reads this and wants aluminum rear louvers for their car was to contact Willpak as well. The more people that email them the more they will see a demand is there. It doesn't take long to email them.

Tigger had a set on Ebay but I don't know if he sold them. Check with him, you may get lucky.

You have to go on their website and fill out the contact form like I did. Here's the link to it: http://www.willpak.com/support/
I wouldn't hold my breath on the wagon louvers getting made but if they get enough buyers for the regular hatch louvers then you never know. It would still help everyone involved to contact them. The more they are bugged about it the better chance we all have of getting them to make louvers for us.

I doubt they got more than a hundred responses. It would be nice to see them made but it's a limited market.
