I have been toying with the idea of just fabricating my own as well. Thanks for the reply!

I just fixed mine with a fabricated section, but mine was badly rotted in just a small area near the heater box intake. I made a thread on another forum about it http://www.stangnet.com/mustang-forums/8...build.html

Nice work! That is the exact same repair I need to do. Not to turn this thread into a discussion (too late?), but did your "hat" have a flange on the bottom of it, if so, how'd you make it with a full radius? Or did you just have tabs then but weld/seam seal the connection of the hat to the lower cowl?

I have thought much about how to make the hat with a flange, but it requires buying a sheet metal stretcher.

Yes, my hat was flanged along the bottom. I cut out and brought the rusted piece to a local sheet metal place that specializes in HVAC ducting, which involves similar shapes as the cowl piece. They made it up no problem and charged me close to nothing to do it... I would try a place like that closer to you. If you can't find a place to do it, I can try to have a couple made up for whoever is interested Smile.

Spiral--just read your writeup--I had to laugh---Old 2+2gt had blasted me over on mustangforums over the cowl section. Told me dynacorn made it for over a year. I said uhh no they dont and I wrote them and they said they had no intention of making one. Also told me they made the front frame rails for these cars. I said hmmm could you post up the part numbers for the cowl and the rails----he locked the thread instead lol

I bought a good used one from Don at OMS. Worked out perfect for me. He actually had alot more of it than I needed so I sent him a pic and he cut it down to save on shipping.
