Have you considered any of the JB Weld products?

3M automotive attachment tape.
The local body shop would most likely sell you enough for the louvers.

You can try some 3m VHB Tape

I also remember a vanner here that used the small binder clips.3 going down each side I think? Cliped the on with the window open. Them pinched the handle part off.

I put some louvers on the pop out rear windows of my Ford a few years back. I used heavy duty velcro and it has held up for years of 80 MPH driving.

It's good to know they stick with just some 3m tape. I'm about to pick up a set for my Ford and was scared to trust just the tape but it sounds like it's been tried and tested.
