From what I've read, they will not do any without the logo. I've seen waay too many people asking and just get shot down.

I know I want one in the long run, but the logo, might have me go with the Hyline.

That's some terrible customer intimacy in the name of cheap advertizing. Its not even like anyone would mistake that louver for another manufacturers. Not impressed PSC.

Chicks are allowed build threads here, right?

Anyone that knows anything about these companies will soon realize the lackluster quality and service that PSC offers

I give the top the official IndyORV "That **** is titties dog" props. To be read correctly use your "hood" inner reading voice.

As for the louver panel... You all are over thinking it. Cut it out and weld a new blank piece in its place. Or, have a piece that says Greta in flowing script plasma'd out and weld that in its place. Watch your heat so it doesn't warp. Problem solved.

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.

I second this. Getting a custom louver cant be that much more expensive than a brand manufacturers. Even if it is a bit more expensive- its yours and only yours.

Well, I have an e-mail in to them that's awaiting a response, so we'll see what they say.

I'm honestly not that familiar with them, which is why I wanted to see what people had to say in regards to them; I wondered if someone would chime in with information on the less-tangible portions of their products.

Thank you, sir! I may not be urban enough to say it that way, though.

I was tumbling to that conclusion, albeit in more complicated fashion; I thought about making a cut for the entire panel and welding it into the hood itself. Your way is easier, though. Nicely done.

The problem is finding someone with the punch; I'm looking for shops online and realizing that I'm going to be searching as far as I did for the top. Arg!

Sd did you say you were thinking about welding the louver to the hood..? Seems like a lot of excess work for little reward. Especially since the psc cant be welded to it and the hyline has pressed/welded studs.

Ask the top dude about getting the hood punched (that sounds kinda dirty). I bet he would at least know somebody who knows somebody...

Look for a sheet metal fabricator in your area. Most can either do louvers or know of another shop that can. Or you can contact a company like THIS and see if they will custom make a panel for you. My guess is that they would and it would probably cost less than a PSC panel would.

In-Progress Spy Photos: Greta's Half Top

Pictured: It's done, and this doesn't even remotely do it justice.




It's just the right amount of "smooth and tight" while still having an almost-military look to the wraps and details. More photos will be coming tonight/tomorrow morning.

That dude killed it, in that timeline, geez you lucked out finding the right person for the job. I could see someone dragging their feet for months, wasting yards and yards trying to get this right. I'm so happy for you that it turned out good. Congrats brother.
