Hey Guys,
Ive checked with OPG, Ames, Paddocks, for this part, but it seems to be on backorder. According to OPG they are backordered until March. I was wondering if anyone had one of these panels they didnt need and would like to sell it?? The part below my windshield is very rusty and needs this part!! Can anyone help?? THanks guys, JB

Hey Pal,
I should of clarified, that is the "entire cowl piece". I just need the small part that is around $80 to $100 bucks. I just looked in the Ames cataloge, and they show it, then I entered the part number on their website, and I think, I think it is available.  I cant check until tomorrow as everyone back there is gone.  I will let you guys know!! Thanks as usual Matt!!! JB

Ah- Naw you asked the right question, I gave the wrong answer. I see plenty of those out there but none of the uppers, even if you look for Chevelle stuff. Means there must be just one place making them if nobody has any. You did right to come here and see if anybody has one. If I get backed into a corner like that, I'm normally not opposed to cutting the panel off then fixing it and putting it back on. I bet somewhere theres a four door malibu with a usable one, too. Nothing would be available at all on some vehicles, so at least you have the option to wait and thats a plus. Hope you get lucky, GTO fixin man!
