    I'm back with another request. Madfish did this for me awhile ago. The real car is getting closer. The color will probably be a hunter green, not two toned.

    I posted this version because the detail is more visible. What I'm considering is the side lovers on the hood.
    The story is that when the GM brass was making the final approval on this detail that the drawings were laying on a table and when they were signed, the signatures were upside down. So, the louvers wound up being 'upside down'.
    After searching I could only find one example of someone flipping them. (Which I believe involves cutting a section out of each side panel and flipping them side to side.) In this instance, the section was also lowered. What I would like to see is the louvers with the side 'bubble' reversed in place. And as an option, just the louvers switched leaving the 'bubble' in it's original orientation. Finally, the stainless trim. I would like to see it on and off in each version.

    Here is the hood side from the actual car. I have the material to make two complete hoods, one with the modification and one stock. I just don't want to cut up metal until I see what it is going to look like.
    Thanx in advance,
    Bruce

    Yes that's it. When I looked carefully at the actual hood sides, I realized that the louvers were made in such a way that they can be flipped as you have shown, but that the louvers themselves have the wrong 'rake'. I had to look at them for a long time to see why they just didn't seem right.
    I think that the louvers need to be in the orientation of your second picture but at the top of the 'bubble' like the original. Seeing how the metal was shaped that would make it necessary to cut each one out and weld it in separately. Thanx for the Photoshop. You saved me a lot of work. I like the color of green you made it. I may go a shade or two darker, but that's close.

    By the way, I think the story about the upside down drawing is false. Looking at the real metal, you can see that it was intended to be the way it is.
    Thanx again,

    Bruce

    Is this because Freiberger is wanting to change the "Crusher Camaro"?

    Moose, or ??
    I had you color up another coupe for me to get some ideas from. This is the project I'm working on, and wondered if you can "paint" it?? Black fenders and running gear with an orange body ( kind of a brownish orange- like the Kroil can pictured). If you can stick a motor in that would be totally cool too.
    Thanks, Mike B.
