|Cowl Repair - Part 2|
|Completing the Repair and Repainting the Firewall|
|Both cowls are re-welded in, brushable seam sealer is applied, Eastwood Rust Encapsulator is applied and weldable primer is sprayed around the edges.|
|The inner cowl painted with DP90, two coats.|
|The upper cowl and a front upper valance piece are cleaned and painted with DP90.
Because of the low pressure the air compressor made over time, I could sandblast without worry of overheating and/or warping the metal surfaces.
|I've re-welded all the upper cowl spot welds I could - I ran out of welding rod. As you can see, there's more to do.|
|Here's a close-up pic of the re-welds. It's alot of hot, sweaty work.|
|I have sandblasted and scrubbed the firewall and upper cowl clean of rust and old paint. I wiped the surfaces down with degreaser, then...|
|...painted them with DP90 primer.|
|Here's another pic of the primered surfaces. They turned out NICE!|
