Default Hood louvers/vent for zr1

Who makes the hood louvers to replace the hood window on the c6 zr1? I've seen them on a couple cars, just can't find them online. Thanks.

Just be sure to move the heat gun around the window (inside of hood) where the adhesive is located. Don't hold the heat gun in one spot to long or you could damage the paint or window. You can use a flat blade screwdriver to help separate the window from the hood. The adhesive should start to release at around 350*, but it take forever at that temp .
