Anybody have or know of someone that does hood louvres?

I wanted to make some custom hood louvre panels for the xj. I haven't found anything I liked yet...

There used to be a custom shop in Comstock Park years ago. Pro Fat Engineering if I remember correctly. They did it, but I don't think they are around anymore....

He just happened to stop by today

He doesn't do it anymore, he uses a guy in Elkhart....says it is approx. $1. per louver but I know that is not convenient for you, he said there is also a guy in GR that does really nice work buy would be more $$$...http://www.crafty-b.net/
