If your cowl vent panels are suffering from rust, upgrade to CJ Classics' 2-piece cowl panel assembly. CJ Classics' 2-piece cowl panel assembly comes with the upper cowl vent grille and lower cowl panel. The upper cowl vent grille includes pins for the lower windshield molding clips. Each panel is constructed of high-quality stamped steel for strength and durability.
There are many advantages of the weld-thru primer, such as preventing resin build up between welds that can trap moisture in the old porous steel, resulting in failure at the weld borders. Lower resistance at the weld surface also allows better penetration into the denser, new steel that helps forgive an old alloy's problems with porosity and impurities.
Please Note: This cowl is correct for 1964.5 and early 1965 Mustangs. Late 1965 and 1966 Mustangs were slightly different where the wiper arms come through the cowl. This cowl will work on late 1965 and 1966 Mustangs.
