If the louvers were glassed in you would have trouble from the git go. glass will not bond to metal, the metal will start moving around between the glass causing all kinds of problems.
There is a two part epoxy that they use on corvettes that works great, only problem it comes in 55 gal. barrels. If you have a shop around that works on corvettes you might be able to get some. It is not cheap about $100 a quart, for both the epoxy and harder, it is a one to one mix. So you get a half gallon for a $100 bucks.
I used it quite a bit on mine, and a little goes a long way. To get a flush fit you have to grind into the glass on the hood a little deeper than the metal then put a thin layer of the epoxy down, lay the metal in there, and epoxy over. Don't put it too thick as this stuff is like metal when it gets hard.
You can grind it with 36 grit paper and it will spark like metal. Very hard to work with but it does the trick. I had the name and numbers on my computer but when I got a new computers they got lost, so I will have to get someone to go up in my shop and get me the numbers.

34 street beast
anyone know where I can find a hood for
my 34 street beast?took my old hood to the body
shop to repair a few cracks around the louvers,
and it turned into a night mare.the body shop guy
stripped the hood,fixed the cracks.set the hood back
on the place to repaint,and it cracked again!!he said
that the louvers being metal and the hood fiberglass
caused it to crack.he now wants to take out the louvers,
put the hood on the car,and fiberglass in the holes.
I already owe him over 200 dollars.if I could just find
another street beast hood,it would be cheaper.
appreciate any help.

Dave I think IMO you should have a shroud on it, I will bet that will take care of the over heating. I would put a 190 stat in it, you need to slow the water down so it can get cooled in the Rad.. A lot of guys go smaller on the stat. that the water goes through too fast to get cooled.

My car didn't have a lower cover it was like a stock car. That must have been something that they came out with later.
