No, hood louvers are open and functional for air movement in engine compartment.

Heh, heh, Jerry wwpptc sent me some decals of something quite nostalgic for me.

This decal has been on my Hot Rod Model A Coupe since 1965 and is still on it now with my nephew.

I am so thankful to Jerry for being able to do this for me.

Heh, heh, I also hear he can do shift knobs as well.







Some pics of my coupe thru the years with the decal

More Progress

Added some double sided tape to standoffs. Giving some support for exterior sheetmetal after reinstalling backside of lid.



Reinstalling the backside of lid. A whole lotta work bringing exterior louvered skin into fitting the unaltered backside. But my friend Roger, with many clamps, prevailed and managed to get things to fit.



Some sanding and new coat of primer. A whole lot stiffer lid now with backside tacked into place.
