    :rolleyes:...From Our Friends in Japan...

    Hotrod Custom is Alive and Well over Yonder and whether acquired or built I am always impressed with attention and appreciation to period and details evident...

    Great Stuff...

    Victor Hotrod Shop is a popular place it seems and he has fun with this stuff that's for sure...

  3. My bad. I was thinking that you were a bit more east and it wud be more of a straight shot for you. Your concern is appreciated. Perhaps, if the stars align just right, you cud get some hot rodders from your area to caravan down with you. There is safety in numbers.

    Hamber @HerMink has an inspired Vintage Hotrod progressing in an exceptional way and Guess What?...Yepp...It has Louvers...I guess they are still popular with 1965 and down Historically and always will be...He not only has a handle on capturing the flavour of vintage he captures it well in film...here are a few that caught my eye...Check out his build you won't be disappointed...;)

    :rolleyes:...Ya gotta be happy with those Luke...they look great...;)

    Just a heads up All...Luke and many here have hand punched their own louvers using home crafted methods many showcased in Tech threads here and there.

    @tb33anda3rd posted one of the tech threads at link below by Hamber @-Brent-

    https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/just-louvers.1028008/page-40#post-13132466

    :rolleyes:...Interestingly connected is a pic Brent posted in his opening post is Hamber @HomemadeHardtop57's Cyclone Racing Hotrod which actually is inspired Vintage Hand Punched Louver from a Set of Homemade Louver Punch and Die created and passed on by Hamber @Eli603 who is quite the Vintage Hotrodder himself...

    He has perfected the Art of many styles of Louvering...There are many more with this Craft here and you Hamber's who perfect your own Much Praise...;)

    Getting the know-how from The Hamb even better...that is in essence the Gospel
    Ryan speaks of about this place...

    Thanks to All of You Whom Share the Stuff that Gets Us Hoodlums Excited...

    Those look awesome Louis. Thanks for sharing the pics and the LouverSmith...There are always Hambers looking to have this done and due to workload and skill-set subbing out this process is quite common...

    I have followed your inspiring build and you may have mentioned and shared the process but are those panels held in place with the very Traditional Aviation related Dzus Fasteners? I notice the Holes are dimpled as well indicating a countersunk style fastener may be used with that dimple allowing a flush condition to exist.

    It is the non-self ejecting style of dzus fasteners for the side panels and tool box latches for the top.

    Thanks,
