Actually, there is
a cowl. I took the picture after removing the cowl and finding all those leaves. I also scraped the silicon off the windshield and put a couple new cowl clips. I need to order another pack of that along with my edge wiper cap thing.
And I definitely will power wash the bay. All the wiring has to be switched out anyways, fuse boxes are different.
I also tried to pop the hatch open by putting my good battery in the car. And nothing wanted to work. I didn't check the fuses, I was too lazy, but one of the relays in the car was wigging out, constantly opening and closing. I should just use all the wiring from the SVT, at least I know those work.
And dash removed today.
