Another Cowl repair thread
#1
this repair was done 3 years ago by our member here 'Twinturbomach1'

It was part of a more extensive repair involving my engine bay and frame rails.

the cowl was sectioned without removing the front windshield, and the interior fully installed, and the heater box left in place for mock up.

I did not have any indication of a cowl leak problems were discovered later as metal work continued.

This is a 72 Mach1 A/C car:
