    i decided to go with block off panels instead. i decided to make my own ,the last ones i bought were not all that great. i made them from 18 gauge
    mostly because that is what i have here. i started off by making a card board cutout that i traced from the vent opening. i transferred it to my 18 gauge ,then i added 3/16 to my pattern so i had something to pop rivet to.
    i cut my pieces out on my foot shear. the new panels are flat so i took them to my English wheel to match the contour of the quarter .it took a little while but they shaped out perfectly. next step will be drilling the pop rivet holes in the panels and the quarters and then primer the panels. i already have the block off fiberglass inner panels ,i made these for another project that i used the windows instead.
