Just got the hood back on after punching a bunch of holes in it!
Nice very nice I love louvers as long as i don't have to sand around them.
Make that a big x2!!
X3 on the sanding part but they look great!
thats why i media blast looks great!
Looks real good.
Nice!....I love louvers too!!!!!
That's some serious ventilation ya got going on there!!
Louvers good, couldn't you get a couple dozen more on there?
Thats way cool! Question about louvers, is there a cut-off year/era of cars they're not fashionable on? Seems like you don't see them as much on the old stuff. Just curious...
lotta louvers is good.
Nice. Very nice indeed.
They are cool on most anything, within reason. I would like to put some on my daily driver 88 Chevy pick up!
Sweeeeet Jimmy,looks killer.How ya gonna keep that 3x2 dry?
That's thinkin with your dipstick Jimmy!
holy shit, you've gone mad..
Well, I tried but I am not a good enough welder to take the whole skin off! LOL
I was told that if I keep movin' the water won't come in........But I saw some shmuck that had used tupperware for air breathers before.......I may have to steel that idea! LOL
Har Har Har!!
Thanks guys, just had to do a little showin' off!
Looks very good.
I like 179 of em... I think that the fifth one in the third row from the driver side is a little
off, can you re-do that one? Ha, ha, ha,... Very kool!! I love louvers! Kan't wait to
see it in person.
Fifth from the back or from the front?!?!
I just put 298 yes 298 in a 32 sedan roof yesterday. took 3 1/2 hours
See....that is why I cannot have a louver press.....All of my vehicles would be nothing but louvers. Your hood looks bad ass, I commend your discipline....you found a stopping point with enough metal to still hold it all together, hahaha.
I swear,if I had one, everything I had would look like a cheese grater,especially before I braved doin somebody elses stuff.Jimmy's wagon was bad ass before,and this just tops it off.Perfect family cruiser!!
WoW!! Impressive! I got another 58 wagon roof that is in good shape!!!! Lol! I think the reach would be a bit too far tho!
thank you, I did have to put a couple rubber bumpers under the skin to the cross braces tho. It was flopping in the breeze pretty bad!
thank you! After doing this at Pikes house, I am now looking for a press! Lol! I can see them on the Escalade hood already! Lol!
what do you consider "old stuff"? I think there's quite a few T's A's, Dueces and other asorted old rides on here with more than quite a few louvers.... I'd louver a Saturn if they weren't plastic...
I toyed with the idea of havin' a bunch of louvers punched in the hood of my '94 (same style, unless your's is a 1 ton), but I ditched the truck... It would look pretty cool though, I've got a few older Truckin' mags that I got the idea from...
can't media blast after paint..
that some funny shit there, hah
o, nice job too.
