John, the car looks like it's coming together quite nicely. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/bowdown.gif[/img] At least you're learning from your mistakes. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img] You know, if you used a filler panel between the rear window and the deck lid, you could use a ghia rear hood for the louver opening and with some ducting tie it into the stock set up. This would allow you to fill in / smooth the sides, and still get air to the engine. I'm not sure if the opening would be large enough, but it's probably at least the same amount of square inches that a Notch uses.
