    I would prefer fewer, larger louvers, spread farther apart.
  11. He can do whatever you want. I told him to put as many as he could so he did. He has different traditional sizes. Look through this thread and you can see multiple posts about Chip's work.

    @Hot Rod Ron:
    Nice Type III hood! When I had my shop (Campbell, CA.) Moe @ Valley Custom in San Jose punched my hood and decklid with 260 louvers total. Front and back, O.T. '66 bug looked like a cheese grater. Bug was used for 'quick errands', very fast. (356 mill)
  13. For the notchback I am working on. Chip is in the middle of doing rear trunk lid now.
