That's actually the TRD louvers. As far as I know, Nigel imports items, not develop them.

What is so hard on designing them? Just get it going on a design project and get someones to make it. Or if that maybe find someone with a 3D printer and make it happen. Can maybe make it out of alumn but just would be afraid of it messing up the glass.

I've given up hope on another company making the louvers. $900 dollars for a set is a ripoff.
Wonder if you could make them out of a resin and then wrap them in carbon fibre or something.
and yes i know....bumping an old thread.

I would say look at the prototype TRD rear louvers. Much cleaner. Get rid of that cut out for the brake light and maybe consider the position of the wheelhaus and international light relocation.

It's also making the damn thing light enough. Where as the TRD one seems to be a platic, i'd probably have to do it out of metal.

I'm actually working on set... got a prototype and everything, I've got the basic shape down, now all I need to do is the actual louvers (this is for the small rear window).
