    Welcome John, your in the right place.

    There should be a few buys here that can help you with the louvers. If you could post some photos in the Cars Forum with the materials your using Im sure someone will help out.

    Now for posting photos its really very easy.

    #1 take a digital photo and upload it to your computer.
    #2 When you post a reply look below the editing box. You will see a button called (Manage Attachments) Click that and a pop up window with browse buttons will appear. Click each button and add your photo to each then click upload. You can add up to 20 photos to each post. Its really very easy, just follow the steps.

    Once again welcome and I look forward to your build.

    Xken, which book of Wingrove's was that found in. I must not have gotten that one as I have several books by him and do consider them as some of the best on how to on metalworking for models.

    Hi, holeinthehub and welcome!

    "My" way for louvers…
    Here on E Type (1/8 Monogram)



    Tracing on 0,3 mm brass sheet:




    Cutting:



    Fixation with a scraper blade ( trapezoidal section) and opening with a fine scriber…



    It's ready!







    Hope help you…
