    I have a volare I am planning on making a road runner tribute. I purchased some used window louvers, but I am wondering how they are typically are attached? Is there any risk of them falling off?

    Thanks!

    You didnt say if it was a 76/77 or 78 up....

    Here is for the 76/77. The 78s with the clips require a window removal. But you didnt mention any clips so id think its 76/77?

    The one on the right is a nos unit with the oem factory tape on it, it would just take peal and stick.

    The one on the left (my install) uses 3m two sided adhesive, im thinking 1/2 wide.

    Do the same pattern, make sure you window louver is spotless clean and make sure the window is clean as well, a warmer window will help it make a better longer lasting seal.

    If you window louvers are a touched warped, you can use a little clear silicon (just a dab here and there on the outer edge and wipe off excess on install.

    Link for tape. Id consider the 1/2 wide.
