    BTW - My initial plan was to cut the gator board so that it would slip over the louvers with them in the closed position. Then the reactor, etc would all be built to sit on top as well. However I found that the deck equipment mostly sits below the level of the louvers - in other words with the louvers in place the stuff would be below and even if you built it to sit on top it would just look wrong. This is why I decided to just build it as accurate as possible and then just display with the louvers open. Of course you can easily remove and re-install the louvers but I opted not to... I spent a lot of time getting my louver latch to actually work and didn't want to undo that.

    or the weight on the louver and it cracking? How much does some of this equipment weigh Andy?

    It depends on your build...
    The gator board stuff is negligible - I built the louvers and circular part of the reactor of it. Of course the hubcap and turbine stator adds weight (my original design is actually just two hubcaps and they weigh very little. Because of the hose attachments and at the box area behind the core, I built it out of 1/2" plywood. My reactor has plywood heat sinks around it now - they weigh very little but I am prepping to replace them with the correct aluminum ones... More weight.

    Of course what you will build if it's just going to sit on top will be much less if you are aiming for screen accurate. It's really just a bit of the rearmost top of the louvers and the back end as well as the very top of the reactor. Out of gator board this would weigh nothing so you're probably safe.
