Here's what I was busy doing the past couple weeks. Please excuse the bugs on the bumper, this is after over 1000 miles of driving in 4 days. Plenty more to come by Cat Jam:

Louvers on the hood look good! Someone else I know in Dedham is big into louvers also! :tongue:

Looks pretty good. Going hotrod style there. I always see the '49 and '50 Fords or Mercury's with hoods like that.

Thanks for the compliments everyone :)

Louver press ;)

Actually the hood had to be totally striped. Then bottom bracing in the hood had to be cut out. The louvers are pressed in to the top layer of steel, the bracing is re-attached, then everythingis painted.

I also have a black anodized aluminum panel riveted under them to keep the water off of the engine while still letting out heat :)

I was wondering about that. I just assumed you wouldn't drive it in the rain. :)

LOL, kinda on subject:

The shop that did the paint on the fenders and hood told me not to buff the hood off of the car. Apparently the louvers tend to make them want to shoot across the shop. The best thing about that is you know they've seen it happen :D

Plenty more mods to come by Cat Jam :D
