Re: Smooth wiper cowl?

Just trying to imagine it, I'm thinking it might look dumb if it just had holes cut for the wipers, but I dunno. Seems like it would need to be a little more elaborate, like the dished area around the wipers on the factory, fiberglass, or urethane cowl.

I agree, just a hole wouldn't work, I don't think the wiper posts would be long enough & wouldn't have room for the wiper arm to move.
You'd have to do a recessed area more like the urethane cowl.

My painter prefers to paint when the temperatures decent outside so the booth maintains a good temp with exhaust fans on for better results & is also squeezing it in while doing a couple of large restoration jobs.

I'm anxious to get it back but rushing your painter is never a good thing.

Yeah that's true! Tell him your fellow forum members are impatient!

Re: Smooth wiper cowl?

To complete the install on these we also made screens for the holes in the cowl & a wiper motor delete panels.

Re: Smooth wiper cowl?

Looks great man! Maybe sometime down the road I can find somebody to fab me one to work with wipers. Not sure if you saw, but I did something similar with the wire mesh on mine. However mine is attached under the stock cowl.

Re: Smooth wiper cowl?

Thanks! I am happy with it.
When you stand back the piece just kind of disappears (which is great) or looks like a 73-80 hood where it goes all the way to the windshield.

How much did that piece come out to?

I think the cowl itself was in the couple hundred bucks range.

Then me and a buddy did some tweaking and fitting before sending it to paint.
