Well after a long search and I was finally able to speak to the manufacturer that made my louvers and they have no desire to remake them.

Out of curiosity were they plastic or aluminum?

If they were aluminum, I don't think it would be that hard to make a replica. A sheet metal bender and shear/cutter and a little time is all that would be needed.

Those don't look very hard to fabricate out of aluminum. I'm no fabrication expert, but a few well placed tabs, spot welds, and professional bends would do it.

They are metal, if you had the tools and more than a little time you could make them, Oh and a set of them for a template would be a plus.

Do they have to come off to open the decklid? How does the mechanism work?

Looks like they have to come off to open the decklid from the picture.

Yeah,
I'm selling them still. I'm open to offers being that the dust on them is getting really thick
I think I paid around $300 for them. I just don't have a fastback that they would look good on right at the moment.
They also hinge upwards when the decklid is opened. No extra steps are needed to open the decklid.

I'd like to get photos and measurements of all of the parts/louvers... I could replicate them easily.
