There are support brackets on the underside of the hood that support the rear 2 attach points of each louver.

Just for info, the brackets can be purchased and installed on regular hoods where the owner wants to add SS louvers. You see them on SS clones from time to time, so they're not a sure fire way of identifying an SS.

Welded. Well, 鈥渟pot-welded鈥 in
9 times out of 10 you can tell the original spot welds because the welds were prior to the hood skin being attached.
