Started my cowl rust repair today
#1
I started work on my cowl rust today on my '72. I pulled the hood and passenger fender off. Then I started taking the dash apart. I bagged and tagged as I went. Still more dash disassembly to do, but it is finally going. I think I am going to completely pull the dash and sand the underside of the cowl to look for all of the pinholes before I start the top side. I am hoping to only cut a section of the cowl off on the passenger side. The good news is the windshield is already broken, so I am going to pull it out to make this project easier and to do it properly.

As all these projects go, I have found 4 other projects I am going to do before calling it done. I am sure that list will grow...

Yea, when you get that far you always get the "While I'm at it sickness"! Never fails! Good luck!

Good luck with it. I too would like to see pics of your progress since I have to do one of these too on one of my cars.

With mine it's the driverside, so would love details on how it goes. Good luck.

I had the shop do it on my 65. My M-code needs upper & lower; it's the worst I've ever seen but that is my dream car so I'm going to fix it!

I haven't gotten to anything unusual/interesting enough for a picture as yet, but when I do, I will take some shots and post. I just have to keep myself in check. On my last project, I started out to do a valve job--9 years and a complete nut and bolt restoration later it is basically done. I don't really want to do that again just yet, so I have to keep the "while I'm at its" under control!

I have a good drivers side cowl
Do you need a/c or non?

It's an A/C car. But I want to finish the media blasting of the whole cowl first. Probably this weekend.
