Cowl vent

The driver side air vent on my 68 is completely rotted out... Any tips on replacing it from the bottom without removing the upper cowl?

Unfortunately I've never heard tell of replacing it from the bottom. Most likely easier to just remove the top of the cowl and replace it. At least thats what I was told when I wanted to replace mine.

There is something called a top hat for 65-66. Looks like an Abe Lincoln hat. Goes in from the bottom. It won't compensate for major rust, but it helps with rust right around the intake. Try the online vendors.

Yeah, you're not going to be able to do a sheet metal repair from underneath. Here's mine. It was damaged on top so we didn't have to fix rust.

I've removed everything under my dash for a rebuild and there is not really a good way to fix it from the bottom side. Luckily I don't have to fix or replace anything on my cowl or vents.
