Sorry if this is in the wrong forum I dont post on here much...

I am looking to build my own dog trailer and want the adjustable louvers for the doors.

Does anyone know where I can find those?

I know all of the big name dog box companies have to get them from somewhere.

Thanks

Austin Hardware is another good source, but don't know if they have louvers.

Russ at dogboxparts actually was able to combine a couple 2 louver ones that were 12" wide for me into one. This is what was on my order form and he charges a little more to connect them and for the continuous drip channel.

12-2 louvers with the connected end to end with one continuous drip channel.

kind of getting off topic now but for breezeway do yall suggest going with the gas shocks or just "flip springs" as I call them.

If gas shocks, where do yall suggest finding the short ones for an 8-12" tall breezway?

Pretty sure Russ can get you the gas struts too. He used to build the Crow River dog boxes.

I just sent him an email asking what all he can get. Guess I should have just done that in the first place.

Thanks guys for all the help I'll post up pics when completed

I've got a custom designed Northstar box that I had designed with a breezeway. The gas shocks originally spec'd out for the breezeway were too strong for the doors and affected the way it closed. I brought it back in and had Northstar put kick stands that hold the breezeway doors open and they work great. Especially if you're building this box yourself, positioning the gas shocks can be a pain and this was a quick and very simple alternative. BTW, The guys at Northstar were great to work with and very receptive to my ideas.
