    I believe Jr. Nelson, the pinstriper, does louvers as well, he's in Tacoma and in the phone book.
    A few others as well in Tacoma, just can't remember their names off hand.

    I assume the "big dollar" shops in the area offer this service but at crazy prices.

    I remember a guy in Vancouver B.C. who has a louver business under his first name followed by louvers. I just searched for his name and website address in my book-marked favorites but came up empty-handed. I'll keep searching and let you know. His costs (6-7 years ago) were $1 per louver but he was limited to very few sizes. Still, great prices and good work from what I had seen.

  6. Mad Max in Washougle just North of Van Wa. He does a nice job. 360-609-5110
    Tell him The Wizzard sent ya. He's a good guy to know.
  7. Zapato has punched a few. He's in the Portland area, I think.

    Might PM him and see if he's still doing them, or if he has the time.

    He might be pretty busy with his wife's injury and all.
  8. Steve's Auto Restoration in Portland...You would think he would be expensive, but he is not and does a nice job with a few different choices.

    Am interested in having you do some louvers for me, if you're willing.
    I know Comet from jeeping, and my jeep was louvered by Torg quite a few years ago, and was just recently rolled, destroying my hood. Since Torg's passing last year, I no longer have a resource to louver my replacement hood. If you would forward contact info to me, I would greatly appreciate it. I'll also try and send you a PM with this info, in case you don't re-read this thread.
    Thanks in advance.

    No, not related to any Jims (at least that I know of)

    My nickname came from poor driving skills a long time ago. My right foot was too heavy, and I drove up a tree.
