Does anybody know what the deal is with the caps under the cowl? I was cleaning out a mouse nest and found that the passenger side cap was cracked open. What are they there for? Does anybody have a replacement for sale?

Those help to seal the engine bay fumes from going into the vent cowl.

What would be the harm of installing the cowl without these?

Yes.. just pops in.

Yes, that's the cap I'm talking about. I'd like to keep the mice, debris, and water out. Does the cap just pop into place? I'll send you an email tonight about purchasing one as well as some other little parts.

You are talking about the large plastic cap under the cowl to right center in this picture. I am not quite sure what they are for. Perhaps to facilitate construction of car. If it is for other maintenance in the shop manual I have missed it. I do hove a box full of these. I I an pick put a very nice one for $5 and ship for a couple bucks 1st class if you want a nice one.

It's not the easiest spot to photograph, but here is the area I'm talking about.

Original 64 Color sanded and buffed out

Posted by Norman Silverman on November 10, 2018 at 9:05pm 14 Comments

I finally got the car back from the body shop, where they color sanded and polished it out. I am literally blown away by the result! Now, it looks great from 2 feet but if you look REALLY CLOSE you can see that the paint is not as glossy as it should be, but Sothe end result is much better than what I started with. The interior is still original.
