Default Could anyone form some Louvres in an Aluminium Panel?

Could anyone form some Louvres for me in an Aluminium Panel as on the photo? (Obviously will pay for your time and effort). About 2mm thick sheet. In the old days it would be Smiths on Lisle Street or the Edgware Road... Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.

You could try some of the custom car type people or forums. I know there are bodywork companies that put louvres in car bonnets and other body panels.

Martin. Thank you. The difficulty with that is the commercial car people cater to classic car enthusiasts with deep pockets! Yours. Anthony

Try a local sheet metal workshop. Riverside Sheet Metal in Littlehampton punch them for me. Talk to Danny.

A thought occurred to me.

I used to have a decorative louvered panel in my lounge to ventilate nearby living flame gas fire. I imagine these are available at various sizes and moderate cost from central heating, or gas fire outlets.

My panel was in a satin gold finish but there were matt silvery aluminium ones available as well

Rontech. Thank you. That is an option though I would prefer to keep some `some` authenticity for this 70-year old equipment.
