New Windshield Cowl

This was a much bigger pain in the ass than I thought! I sold my daily driver in a week and until I replace it I may need to drive the convertible on less than desirable days. The top seal on the cowl had cracked in a few places and this gave me a good reason to replace it. I ordered it from eEuroparts.com for $47 with a few extra clips. Fast and free shipping!

Usually the hardest part for people is getting the wiper arms off and on again.

You are correct sir! I ended up using a small puller to remove the arms. Also getting the two ends of the cowl in around the hood really tested the nerves.

You can just cut the two tabs off in the corners, plop it down, done. Makes life easy, painless, and beerful

The arms are easy... The hard part is making sure you put them back on aligned correctly. I think I put one on a bit off and now it's weird.
