    Looks good!

    So how did you do the louvers?

    Cut first and then hit them with the tool?

    What do you do on the backside of the hood?

    Yes I did cut first, then reverse the hood and hammer the louvers one by one, the hood was on the grass in my garden when punching it

    Very cool. your louvers have a nice soft look to them.
    Sometimes depending on the dies used, I can't help but think "gym locker" when I see a hood or trunk punched full of sharp Chrisp louvers.
