    65 Coupe #658 Headed Toward Completion.

    Headed toward the finish line. Need to install a few fender well panels, the windshield and miscellaneous interior carpeting.
    Then on to registration in Florida.
    Photo's do not do the paint justice. Looks outstanding indoors or out.

    Looks awesome! Love the color.

    Any chance you could post more pics and details on the hood vents (louvers/heat extractors)?

    Color is Ford Sterling Grey metallic and Stripe is Ford Silver Grey metallic. Louvers are from Shane at V Raptor Speedworks who also did the one-off vents at the rear.
    I will try to get some close ups tonight when I get home from work.

    Man The Inside Looks As Good As The Outside!
    Also, I see you are running an Edelbrock AVS Carb.
    I hope you like yours as much as I like mine.

    nicely done with some cool extra touches. I like your door pulls, might "borrow" that idea for mine.

    Logan, Here are a couple of close ups of the hood louvers. I used stand offs from McMaster Carr that are epoxied to the underside of the nose. That way you can adjust final height using washers (flush or proud of the surface).

    JOE A - Thanks for the pics. I like your mounting technique too. They look like TrackSpec hood vents, which is a good thing. Nice products.
