    3rd & 4th gen rear hatch glass size

    I'm trying to get a set of rear window louvers for my 4th gen firebird. I tried the Astra Hammond plastic louvers and so far they don't work and really don't look the way I want them too. I noticed a set of metal louvers are manufactured for 3rd gen f-bodys (up to model year 1992). These look the way I want and seem better quality but, will they fit on the rear window of a 4th gen? Does anyone know how different the dimensions of the rear glass is between the 3rd and 4th gens? If its close, perhaps I could modify the metal louvers from the 3rd gen to fit.

    The glass as far as I can have totaly different curves to them. the 4th gens bein more rounded and flared at the bottom, vs the slightly more square glass of the third gens.
