Lots of discussion a year or so back Charles. Vitally and Mick both did a bang up job on louvers for their Bugs.Sorry but I'm no good at searching the archives, but at least it's a startingpoint for your question.I'll be making up a punch to use in my hydraulic press. The dies are pretty simple and I would seriously think about something along those lines rather than cut slots and try to hammer them out.dg

Might help locate those threads Charles. "Thrush" is Michael Sutton's handle and 'Bitalli' is Vitaliy Koyy's. dg

Chuck .... , just a few small panels of louvers, strategically placed, will give you the desired effect. I am familiar with the car. Don't over-do it. Said aluminum panel would be just a little larger than the louver cluster. Attach it where you want it. Lance has an original 50's louver press. Offer: I'll make 'em if you send some sized aluminum and a sketch. gk

I've seen that Vince, thanks. I've got a couple ofhydraulic presses in the shop and a couple ofBridgeport milling machines so when I get to thatstage I'll be making a more permanent metal punch.Also I am looking at making a set of louver dies for the bead roller which I just finished, which will allowme to make some odd size, odd shaped louvers. But I'm always open to new ideas and the more ofthem I see the better for my final design.Denny G
