Before you louver your hood,find someone that has or had one and ask about the effects of salt air on the engine chrome w/a louvered hood.
That could be why you cant find one..:confused0006:

I believe East Coast Chevy will do it for you.....However, they are not located in Florida.

There is a shop in Orlando that does the louvres. I am still trying to find out the name of the place. Hope this might help. I will post back when I find the gentleman that had his hood done.

6 million $ Hood...

Years ago I thought I wanted a hood like that until I helped a friend wax his.....whew!!! Quite a job.
You think wax'n Louvers is tough, try paintin' and wet sanding out 116 Louvers without any sanding marks showing around the edge of the Louvers... we now call this "The 6 million $ hood", :eek: as many times as we had to redo it to get it right... the Louvers were punched in Morris, Okla. in 1981... :cool:
