    This is something I am very worried about, if I get these installed will they stay on? Anyone else out there installed these and managed to keep them on the car? So far I can't find any other company that makes a better design.

    the metal ones right? I think they are smaller and cooler looking. These plastic ones kind of look like a roach or something.

    Yeah, the metal ones, I think they are made of aluminum. They look much better than the plastic ones. Can't find anywhere that makes them for the 4th gens though.

    I found some metal ones for a 1992. Are the dimensions of the glass on the rear hatch of the 3rd gens and 4th gens similiar? If they are close in size, maybe I could make this one fit.

    I don't have pics of it on my car right now, but it looks just like the ones that are linked to in an earlier post on this thread. At the moment they are not on my car, as I've been unsuccessful in getting them to remain in place with the cheap hardware that was sent to attach them to the glass.

    being the 3pc did they hook together easily tho? and line up good. Yea id ditch the 3m tape and get some real good silicon. I had the astra hammond louvers on my 79 280zx and i had to bend those metal tabs as well so they contoured the window.
