Since I saw this threads about louvers I wanted to throw out a question.
I have a old truck... hood is just a sheet of factory bent metal. (what I am trying to say is it doesn't have all the cross bracing like today's cars do)

I am going to cut louvers in my pickup hood to help with heat issues.
Will this weaken the hood, strengthen the hood, or make no difference.
I assume the number of louvers and location will have some effect also..??
