GTMustang I sent a PM to you, am interested in the lower section you have.

Cruising68, my cowl was pretty well gone on the bottom side, top might be salvageable. If my welding skills were juuuuuust a bit better I'd maybe tackle it trying to fab some pieces. Never know, i still may give it a shot.

I need to learn how to do that multi-quote function, would make it a bit easier to answer folks.

Your welding skills improve significantly after doing a cowl


On the multi quote, select MULTI QUOTE for all quotes except the last. On the last select QUOTE and it should work.

Thumbs Up Cowl

I still have the bottom piece brand new if I can help any members out here only needing the bottom piece.
Let's see if this will work....PM sent

My lower cowl is shot.

I agree, hopefully I don't blow threw the parent metal tooooo much.

Thanks

Almost got it right, unless the last quote keeps the answer in the box like mine did above.

Thanks again, I'll have to practice more with it.

FWIW, there is only ONE manufacturer for the 65-66 upper/lower cowl, and everyone is importing the same cowl (Drake, Dynacorn, NPD, etc..). The factory that actually makes it is Musclecar GT (which is Dynacorn's primary source), and we (NPD) buy direct.

For the sake of discretion and decorum, I bite my lip plenty on the forums... But all of the "branding" that goes on with U.S.-based importers really drives me insane, because it causes so much confusion throughout the hobby, so many restorers spinning in circles and chasing their tails, because they're being misled or confused.

Then... Toss into the mix a couple of giant racing parts suppliers deciding to dive into the restoration parts game in order to supplement their sales, but having no real knowledge or experience with the products, basically just "uploading" giant ACES & PIES data/image-files from U.S.-based W/D suppliers into their systems with a single keystroke and then re-selling it...

And you have chaos...

O.K., back to biting my lip...
