just bought 66 convert from out of state. big leak in car last rain. Appears to be from under dash, ? cowl? car has high end paint. any ideas how to clearly identify source and repair . any local repair facilities you would recommend?
CJ mustang , etc others have a cowl repair kit installed from inside the car. Does anyone know someone who has made this repair or a shop that has made this repair? at 73 I am not limber enough to do this myself. any suggestions? I may buy the cowl cover regardless?
Wet carpet! I was on the other Mustang board. First, I need a correct diagnosis of the problem. I feel fairly certain leak is from the cowl based on the amount of water. windshield and door hinge installation appear to also be possible sources. I am no longer agile enough to get under the dash, etc. I see there is a hat repair installed from the interior available? I am guessing that plugged drainage holes could also be the problem. Are there Mustang specialists or places with experience repairing these type of problems in SW MI or in MI that members would recommend??

It could also be your windshield. A few years back a fellow club member had a similar problem after he had his 65 painted and it turned out to be an improper sealed windshield. The spent most of a rainy trip back from Alabama mopping up water.
