I am looking for a set for the chop. I found a set for sale near me but they painted the centers. I am going to go look at them to see if I can remove the paint.

I finally had to let a set go I had. They were mis matched centerlines and ultra wheels and were for small GM which doesn’t fit anything I own but they were so cool. Fronts were 8.5’s, rears were deep 10s. Sold them to a guy with a g body so I’m hoping they get used well. They are bad ass.

That's going to look killer Lee. My buddy Paul that runs Old Anvil Speed Shop in CA is really good with Louvers of all shapes and sizes. I've been trying to think of somewhere I could incorporate a few from him, but haven't made up my mind as to where yet. I wish I could get my van to CA easier, because there are a few ideas I've had for him to do to the van, but it's a logistical nightmare trying to make it happen. The guy is a metal magician, been fabricating since he was a young teenager. He moved from VA to CA a few years back to work with Jimmy Shine then opened his own shop and has been knocking out some seriously killer work since then.

I can't get enough of looking at the pics of this van man. Thank you for sharing all the progress. Your work is amazing and very inspiring to step outside of the norm and think of new ideas for customizing.

kursed : just checked out your Buddy Paul's shop; looks like he does nice work. I'm stoked to know I have a connection with a quality shop within driving distance from San Diego. Check out the Kentucky Louisville Craigslist ad for the 1974 G10 Shorty at $5500.00 with the welded side door. it was a garage paint job and I'm sure the metal work has challenges as well.

I can forward some videos the owner Steve sent me to get your valued opinion; and if a miracle happened ; could your buddy Paul restore the slider to stock in your opinion. Your help is greatly appreciated. SDMickey

Wasn't thinking. Lee is a True Vanner with great skills. I get blown away at his self taught workmanshiop with his posts.

Yeah, that was his dream, to start his own rod shop in CA. I'm happy he went for it. Seeing your louvers made me remember the day he got his old school louver press. Like a kid on Christmas.

Did you press your louvers that came off the old van, or were they already on it? I've been thinking of shipping him a spare hood I have to get him to work some metal magic on a hood scoop idea I've had rolling around in the back of my head.

Man I really can't get enough of opening this thread and drooling over the darn chop and flares. Outstanding work so far. Can't wait to log in and see more progress each time your thread pops to the top.
