Default Eyeball Engineerings Custom Louvers

Got flat, boring panels on your rig? Not sure what to do to dress them up?

Got a motor buried deep inside the chassis and don't want to cut a big gaping hole to let it breathe?

You need some louvers!

All panels are made to order using .025" aluminum sheet cut to your dimensions. The louvers can be arranged in nearly any way, and come in 1", .5", and .25" widths.

Pricing is dependent on the size, quantity and layout of the panels and louvers. Shipping will be via USPS Priority boxes only. I'd hate to risk them being squished in a padded envelope.

For example: Two 3x5 sheets with eight 1" louvers each will run about $20 + shipping.



My Eco-clone has them on the hood for looks, and on the side panel to help direct air to the motor.



If you're worried about them scooping up dirt/rocks/whatever, you can Shoo-goo screen material behind them, or something more solid if you are more interested in the look instead of the function.

Options (stay tuned! more on the way!):

PO was closed, so we're going to have to wait an extra day.

Could you please show a shot of a .25 next to a 1.0 for comparison. Great work.

From Me, By Me, to You.

Slim?


I might be able to come up with something like that, but I've got so much on my plate at the moment that I couldn't even throw out a rough guess of when...

Thanks anyway mate, I would be after around 6 if it's possible to do them. Even if you could do the louver's and I would cut the shape out and finish them off.
