Side Panels

These home made side panels came with the Super Cropmaster I had for spare parts and now will go onto the 30C. Hopefully tomorrow I can start putting some parts in primer and next week the sand blaster will be onsite, weather permitting.

You have to use a specially made press for cutting and forming the louvers. Hot Rodders used to insist on having them years ago then they went out of fashion and they are now making a come back.
Of course on the tractors and crawler they are there to aid the air flow for cooling. Under normal situations the press I saw in action would punch or stamp one at a time so getting it in the right position was important. On a production line they would most likely form all at once as would be more economical to do it that way but a bigger outlay on the dies to punch them.
Have a look around YouTube and you will find some there no doubt.
