Louver Panel

Can anybody tell me how long and how high the louvers on the MKI
rear clam louvered panel? Seem the original panel has two lengths on the louvers.

Re: Louver Panel

I can't guarantee that ours are exactly like the original cars' but:

Rear: All are 4" long. (Gap from the edge to the louver end is constant, center gap tapers.)
Top: Outer - 5.2" long. Center - 3" long

Re: Louver Panel

Thanks Bob Appreciated.
One more question on the top how many rows are there.
Looking at different photos there are some with 9 some with 10 or 11
I guess it doesn't really matter just curious!
Cheers
Woody

Re: Louver Panel

I've got pictures of 1033 and 1036. They both had 8 rows of louvers on the deck plates.

Re: Louver Panel

What's interesting is that it looks like all the louvers were the same length, unlike our units.

Could you tell us how tall the louvers are and the gap between them?
