Re: [DML] Two Different Louvre Styles--Anyone else ever noticed this?

I know exactly what you're talking about, Patrick.  The first time I noticed
that, was when James Espey pointed it out to me on another owner's DeLorean
(VIN 789).  I'm assuming it was changed to the 1" spine simply for the
support/cracking reasons, like you mentioned.

I suppose one would need to be a little more gentile opening and closing

I've only seen that oddity louvre on earlier cars, but I don't know what the
cut-off VIN would be.
