front louver detail

Today, we stripped out the armored louver rad cover, its an interesting yet simple design . We added a few pics of the star as well. They are always referred to as an 18 inch star, but what’s noted is the 1/4 overlap in the louvers, and the fact that the star was template spray painted at the time of manufacture, but later repainted by hand later, the paint chips match the white air recognition ring applied before D Day in June of 1944

note the use of open and close push rods on only one side, with simple hole pivots on the other side. For vibration control on the unit, a simple square of rubber has been inserted between the upper armour rails and the side sides
