I want to paint my cowl. Do I have to remove it to paint it or can I leave it on and tape it off
you pop out the driver side first then the passenger one but be careful because you have to unscrew the passenger one from the middle....just be careful so you dont break any tabs....also disconnect the window sprayer lines lol
I did mine last year and removed it to paint used krylon for plastic just wiped down with windex w/ammonia looks like new still.they are easy to remove.look in the how to I think there is a post there.I remember u have to remove I think the dr side first because there is a screw holding the other down under it
I understand how to remove it. I'm just wondering if it's absolutely necessary to take it off. What's underneath it that you couldn't paint it while on the truck. I've read the stories about the broken side tabs and I want to avoid that if possible
It's better to just remove it even though it's a pain.
It's not a pain...very easy...only has 1 screw...it would take twice as long to tape everything up to paint.

Both of my rubber trim pieces crumbled in my hand, but I don't mind its not really noticeable to me.
If you folks can spare a few minutes and use the search, you'll see that this has also been addressed. A poster here made his own rubber end pieces (they are not available to purchase seperately from the cowl pieces); he posted pictures of the pieces he made, described what he used and how he did it.
Search on windshield cowl, or cowl. You'll find it. It was early last year.
Give an answer, they learn for the day; suggest a search, they learn for a lifetime.
