    Got some sound & heat insulation installed:

    A little bit of patching & welding on my new fender done:

    And started dealing with some cowl rust:

    We’re still trying to figure out how to patch that.

    Also tried to reinstall the engine, but the clutch rebuilder provided the wrong TO bearing, so that project is postponed.

    I can't wait to see how you patch the area under the cowl/windshield. I have some work to do on mine too.

    It's the rust spot in the top pic above your post that has me worried: I have no idea how we're patching that. The holes in the fresh air passage I'm planning to patch with an epoxy patching compound. We'll see how that goes.

    First, I primed it with rust converter:

    Patched the holes with a UV-cured patching compound:

    Then I coated everything with a solvent-based undercoat:

    Hope it works.

    So it is a flexible patch that is coated with a UV cured resin to create the patch? Do you have a link to the product you used? I think this would be a great solution to repair the complex contours under the dash.

    Some sort of fiberglass/epoxy composition is the best I can do for you as far as describing it goes.

    I don't have any idea how to provide a link other than: KBS Coatings is the company, KBS Patch is the product.

    My opinion of KBS Coatings has since taken a big downward turn after their clear coat failed me & a customer service rep got an attitude with me on the phone. I'll not be buying from them again. Buy at your own risk.
