Re: Cowl Vent Cover that Actually Works???
Charlie - I've seen the magnetic ones (like advertising signs on the side of vehicles) and the best ones I've seen are homemade ones that are just some thick Lexan/Plexiglass with a bead of silicone all the way around to make a gasket and a few very thin "butterflies" on machine screws that tighten down with wing nuts. Kinda like those drywall anchors with "wings" the pull agains the back side as you tighten. He just used a thin machine screw and a thin plate that drops through the slot - turn sideways and tighten. Just don't overtighten them those ribs bend easy! Not sure if that makes sense to you, but I'll see if I can find one and post it up.....
I wonder if your leak is down the windshield rather than through the cowl somehow?

Only he did it on 4 corners and middle (6 total holders)....
