Discussion in earlier thread titled "polished louvered aluminum hood." Basically you have to cut away the underlying support structure and then an experienced fabricator will use an expensive metal working tool known as a louver press to punch the louvers out. This machine produces even, repeatable louvers but due to its expense it is not something for the home DIYer. Although small by hand punches are available it's probably best to take your hood to a hot rod shop that specializes in this thing. It'll cost a few hundred bucks if you just chop out a portion of the support structure and punch two rows of louvers. If you want the entire support structure removed so that you can reinstall it completely intact you'll have to break all the spot welds that hold it in place which is much more time consuming and expensive job. Once the louvers are punched out you'll likely want to repaint the hood as well.

I have always wanted to have my hood look like that. (the red one) After seeing th M3 CSL hood I really wanted it and didnt want to risk doing it myself due to rust and stuff. I really havent seen any company that makes a hood like that have you guys seen one?

Guess i'll move on, maybe i'll put a NACA duct on the hood.

If you guys want louvered hoods let me know and I can get them done by a friend. The same one who did the one on the red miata. I'm not sure on the price but I'll check. The only thing is that we'll need a core returned. Let me know and thank you all for showing up last night hopefully you guys liked it and maybe we can do it again. We'' try to make it better. Ideas are more than welcome. Ok i got to do something so I'll see you soon.

MiataRoadster.com will soon be retailing Monster Motorsports products including their louvered hood, Wilwood-based 11" big-brake kit, rectangular low-profile headlight kit, rear spoiler, and fender flare/bumpers set.

PM me if interested in the hood or any of the other parts and I'll get back to you with pricing and availability.

Thanks,

Bill
