Full Cowl Replacement

Recommended Posts

I showed this awhile back on my build thread but I figured some of you might haven't seen it.I tried to be thorough as possible and provide good pics. First off the front end, dash and windshield will need to be removed.I started by removing both cowl to shock tower braces with a spot weld bit and some time. Drilled the upper cowl out then finally the lower.o0tiyp.jpgb3vg9x.jpgdy23r7.jpg24cb0wy.jpg then I grind and dolly everything flat and coat with Copperweld weld thru primer. Now you punch your holes in the dynacorn lower cowl, line it up and weld into place.11ipmpf.jpg grind the welds flat to prepare it for the upper.2duxgyw.jpg next I seam sealed around the horns in the lower cowl 9rr3gi.jpgwent ahead and taped up the lower and painted it with valspar semi gloss black since you lose all access once the upper cowl is installed2qwzvk6.jpg311medv.jpg now your ready to prep the upper. Punch all your holes in it and get it fit. Before installing it I ran a bead of seam sealer around the inner perimeter so no water could settle between the two panels, then before the sealer dries install the upper where it needs to be by screwing it into placeb5ntab.jpg35hph1y.jpg now your ready to weld thr upper in. Just take your time and keep an air blower close by so you can cool each weld quickly so it doesn't burn your seam sealer outvmssbl.jpg grind all your welds flat and reinstall the 2 braces you had removed. 28wi493.jpg done beside filler work and paint! Hope this helps a few people tackling this project.
