Louvers

Does anyone know of a shop in Oregon (Medford, Eugene, Portland areas) or Vancouver Washington that does louvers at a good price and has lots of experience? I am looking to have some louvers punched in my fenders to help draw out the heat from my headers.

Make contact with some of the local clubs and ask around. Maybe some of the guys on this forum can help you out as to where and when they get together. Coffee runs, burgers and such.

I think I will pass on that. I do a lot of redneck stuff, but welding louvers onto 74 year old fenders won't be on that list. If I was gonna do something like that, I'd get some old Buick portholes from the junkyard here and mod them up. Thanks for the idea though.

I would get out to the swap meets.. For example there is a fellow at Monroe and Puyallup that sells metal working tools and holds classes.. I would bet he know someone that can punch some louvers for you.. Portland swap meet is good for that sort of thing as well..Just go there and ask around and ther is someone who can do that..Actually there are several guys on the site from the Oregon area that are builders that may know some metal workers..

Old style

The way they did it in the 20's,
cut the slot with a wood chissel and use a hardwood form and calking tool and hammer

Trade schools. ?

A few years ago I took a Fanel fabrication class At UVU 's street rod program. Over 65, the cost was only $ 100 for 8 till noon 5 days a week for a semester. I made a new deck lid and punched 105 louvers for the nash roadster . Are there any autobody programes in the junmior colleges in your area that might have a press ? I made 4 model T Ford speedster bodies using the school shop where a friend taught.
