I'm thinking of adding the chin spoiler and Sport Slats (Rear Louvers) on my car but not the rear spoiler. Also might add a 70 grabber stripe. Looks like a 69 Boss 302 without the writing. I'm going with the NPD reproduction on the louvers. Since I am having my car painted I was thinking it might be good to have them fitted before they paint the car. I am having the rear glass taken out and reinstalled too so I don't know if that creates a problem later. It might be nice to save that $600 parts expense until later but then I would be drilling into a painted car. And then I've had the car since 85 and haven't put them on yet. Maybe I would not like driving with them after they are installed and then too late. What would you do?
I've been toying with this idea since Ridge Runner started making his fiberglass hood with the NACA ducts. I thought it would serve a purpose of removing air from the engine compartment and have the cool factor of louvers. If I didn't have a shaker hood I'd have already added them. Now I only paid $25 for the hood, and I know it's mine to do with as I please, but I'd like to get some input from all y'all as I do respect the talent on this forum. The hood and cowl will have the dull Mach 1 black paint. If I add louvers I'm leaning towards attaching the panels with rivets or screws for a more rustic look. Kinda like this. So what do you guys think about cutting a shaker hood for louvers? Flame away!
