Honeycomb grille between windshield and hood
#11
The cowl vent openings needed to be large enough to install or remove the long wiper linkage mechanism since the linkage comes pre-assembled with the wiper arm posts and motor connection it is rather bulky.

@rakerm ah! That makes sense.

@eddyw
yeah thought about doing similar except I'd make the shape that goes on the lip of the cowl from aluminum and add a raster like yours underneath
or make them entirely from a plate. Dunno yet. Will do some sketches..
Only thing i'm sure of is I''m not going to keep the originals or set repros.

thx for your inputs guys

Mine was removed and sent off to the bead blaster. Sprayed with the grey heat resistant paint as used on headers. Now recently re-installed. Job was pretty easy with the size of the cowl vent openings and the job went without a scratch to wiper linkage.

Has anyone bought these? If so are they any good??

Wow. Spendy. I bought an NOS set earlier this year for $35

The $54.99 is less than the $61.25 shipping charge plus $5.82 import plus $23.26 tax. Making a grand total of $145.32. Thats nearly triple the original price
