A ton of work in that Pete ! I reckon louvres will never disappear. Maybe decades ago they were the "in" thing, but I still see them where it seems to be apt....

Yeah, Some cars could be either rods or resto-rods, but once its got louvres, that stamps it as hot rod!

Unmistakable and cant be reversed!

Oh, yes, and Dave, they really suit the Cusso.
Yeah. I've changed my signature. The old one was out of date...
