How do I go about cleaning out leaves and twigs that are in the cowl and duct wark for fresh air vents in a 69 coupe? Is there a trap door hidden to give access?

You can remove the cowl panel and vacuum from there and from the vents inside the car.

While on the subject of 69/70 cowls, anybody know of patch panels for this year range?

Or is fabrication the only remedy?

I use compressed air to blow fir needles out of all my cowls and window felts. I also use compressed air to clean my driveway and sundeck; real men don't use girly brooms- but a cast iron twostage 120 lbs of air pressure!

Ah, but with a vacuum cleaner you can control where the grit and leaves go. That's a good thing!

Steve,
I think it would take too long to vacuume my driveway!

You keep your driveway in your cowl vent?
