Louvers and More Louvers

Recently louvered a 1941 Willys Coupe hood and a Ford Deuce original hood. Over 200 old time, 2 1/2" wide round top, louvers in total. For some reason, due to my limited ability in photography, the short row of louvers in the passenger side portion of the Deuce hood appear out of line. Well they are dead straight... Each row and column of louvers are near perfect in alignment, when looking down or across the hood. Wish I knew more about photography and back lighting for pictures.
The majority of the time is spent on the layout for the louvers, on the inside of the hoods ! Cheers !

Deuce Cowl Patch Panels

Finished hammer welding two cowl patch panels in the Deuce 5 window. Slow but steady progress as the entire floor including sub-rails have been replaced in this Deuce. Just my opinion, every Deuce is worth saving. Enjoy !

The first picture is the passenger side cowl patch welded into place, which still requires the paint to be removed, then some light hammer and dolly work.

The second picture, is of the drivers side cowl completed.

The third picture, is of the drivers side cowl rust removed, before the new cowl patch was installed....
