cowl panel

have rust on the cowl panel. I removed it and busted all of the bubbles that were from the rust through from the underside. I actually have two questions. This is the first of them. What are the two peices of foam rubber on the back side of the panel used for? They drawed a lot of moisture and that is what caused the rust. The second question is this. If I put fiberglass tape behind the holes left from the rust and then put fiberglass filler in the pits and hole on the front side will this work and will this cause any future rust? will I need to replace those foam rubber pads?

Thank You for any help.

RE: cowl panel

the foam is there to act as a vibration dampner. get rid of them. They are nothing but rust collectors. I would sand blast the area clean of all rusr then do the fiberglass repair

RE: cowl panel

You could probably just get a better pannel off a parts car - one with a lot less rust to begin with - and a lot less effort to restore
