If there was a panel behind the large openings, that might look OK, but if you can look thru the louvers and see motor compartment 'features', there might need to be some screen or something behind it. That makes the smaller openings a little more sensible.

Kerry - are you glad yet that you asked for opinions

I like what youve done just as it is, its an achievement few will ever arrive at.
One small note from my own metal work... aint nothing looks quite done till the colors on. Try photo shopping some paint on it, everything will change, great job, happy new years.

I read that you've been reconsidering the side vents and came across this picture. I think it's a Talbot or Delahaye. Not sure.

I believe it's Wayne Davis’ 1939 Delahaye 165 with Figoni & Falaschi coachwork.
There's not a lot about it out there but here is what I found
It occasionally pops up at a concourse and open days at his collection.
It's nearly as nice as some of the work on this forum

Nope. It is an imaginative recreation built on a modern street rod chassis. I know the person who originated the project along with several of the people who did the coachwork along the way over the years. Nice car but nothing original from the era.

Thanks for that.
Great workmanship, nonetheless, from what can be seen in the pic.
So who did do the work on it or is there anything on the web about it?
