I was working on making my 89 accept a 93+ plastic cowl setup and was just wondering if anyone would be interested in pictures of what I am doing. I don't think a write-up will happen, but I can post pictures and comment if you like. I've had them on the car awhile with the cowl screws straight into the metal, but after awhile I noticed the plastic warped pretty badly. I think this was due to it not being able to expand and contract as it heated and cooled, since the mounting was solid. So I "relocated" the stock-style mounting to accept the pieces instead. All the holes lined up pretty good too. :D I coulda/shoulda done one more hole relocation, but I think my solution will be acceptable.

I'll take pictures tonight then.

I think the best way to do it would be cut the old mounting tabs off in a single swipe, then welding the newer ones on in a single swipe. Butttt...that'd require much coordination since the windshield needs to come out and stay out while it's going on.
