began the dreaded task of replacing the rusted out portions of the cowl today. damage is localized underneath and around the wiper pivot area on each side, which is apparently very common issue on 1962-65 cars. The driver side interior (lower) cowl panel collected debris and there is no drain on that side (known flaw in early mopars) The rest of the body is rust free except parts of the floor pan because of this same issue, water leaking through the holes in the cowl. I'm going to incorporate a new design into the driver side cowl so that whatever gets in there will be able to drain. So that it won't rust out again. I will shape the panels for this repair form scratch: using hammers, dollys, wooden blocks, sand bags, and whatever other hand tools I can find. I have limited resources. I'm using 20 gage sheet steel. Cutting with snips and cutoff wheel on air tool. Also have a dremel with mini cut off wheels and carbide bits to get into tight spots (very helpful.) + Mig welder to finish it off. Thanks for viewing, hope this helps encourage people to tackle this stuff,...and I'm still learning BTW so call me out if I'm butchering it!
