    Hey guys I’m new on here. I bought a 73 comet about a year ago and it is leaking through the cowl and I’ve been looking for weeks for a cowl cover for when it’s raining and I’ve seen a lot of people talking about it, does anyone have a link to one I could get or any other ideas?

    I have been using thin rectangular Magnets from Wall-Mart. The ones used for covering Floor, A/C Home, Vents. Should be about 2 Dollars for 2 --- 4by 5 inch?

    I have one made for our cars. I don't believe the party I got it from still makes them. May have to do like mentioned in prior post and do the rec. magnetic covers.

    Welcome!

    We got some magnetic material from a local sign shop and cut it to fit our cars. We keep them in the trunk in case we get caught in the rain.
