Re: convertible pics

If you go to the "tips and how to" section on this forum, a semi-good looking dude named Ramses, posted an excellent write up on how to replace the cowl. (It's on page 4)  I also posted my "cowl-eck-toe-me" in this section.  It's really not difficult to do.....just time consuming.
Watch for holiday sales on various mustang vendor sites......that along with free shipping will save you a few bucks on the new cowl assembly.....
