I have a small leak in the cowl. There are two ways to repair this. Costly or cheaply. I don't drive the car much so it doesn't see much rain. More water from washing than anything. Anyone have any say on the plastic repair collars? It's about $600 for the correct repair vs $30 for the cheapy.

you need to determine if it's really the cowl first, might be a leaking windshield or from some body sealer cracked somewhere.

best thing to do is shine a light into the cowl when it's dark and look up under the dash for rust holes.

if you have holes, the cowl hat plastic repair jobs won't do any good.

if you just plan to drive the car and keep it out of the rain, you can use one of those clear covers on the cowl vents when you wash it.

I got the hats to put on but haven't gotten around to it. I put the 'Cowl Cover' a clear deal that locks over the cowl as a temp fix till I get to it. only bad thing about it is you can't use windsheild wiper fluid with it on a 68.

And it doesn't help the defroster defrost the windshield.

fix it right and replace the inner cowl panel. It's just gonna get worse as time passes.
