    Stuff like that is so cool...attention to detail...alot of that has been lost today. Great observation TB and thanks for sharing that. I was trying to find pics of vintage factory louver work but came up empty. That hand clearance would have been an engineered feature however.

    Wasn't me judge.
    Frank, some of my submissions (and many others) are just photos of various louver styles and layouts that we like and have sourced from the internet.
    That cool roof panel was done by Chris Davenport of Salt Flats Speed Shop in Orem, Utah. http://www.saltflatsspeedshop.com

    So Tiki are you going to splice this back to the main bulk of the hood or is it a partial hood with a behemoth 409 sticking out :rolleyes:
    Looks great by the way...;)
