No reproduction for the cowl but they are repairable. See Scotts video in the Saturday Morning Garage. It's an excellent video that shows what's involved. Almost all of our cars have bad cowls. Undecided

Just info, If you plan on using an aftermarket A/C unit...the fresh air vents are not needed.
I closed them off and sloped the metal toward the side drains.

Did you use a Classic Auto Air set-up? That's my plan, and if I can get away with what you did, I might just go that route.

Information that would have been useful to me about a month ago when I fabricated my own patchesHuh That's good to know though, I haven't put my patches in yet...although out of principle I may still since they're already madeDodgy

If you use vintage.. It will come with a plate to block off the Pass. side fresh vent...so, I figured eliminate both of them.

Which kit are you using? I thought Classic Auto Air was the only one that made a kit for our year models (they have a block-off for the passenger side as well).
