Replacement Cowl for 97 GT

Hey guys,

The cowl on my '97 GT is destroyed. Cracked in 3 places and held together with duct tape. I've found a few replacement ones online from LMR and CJPP, but they are upwards of $200, which is fine, but I was wondering if anyone had any leads on somewhere to find a cheaper one?

I've found some pretty cheap ones on ebay, but they all seem to be for the New Edges. How different are they between the sn95's and the new edges?

Replacement Cowl for 97 GT

Theyre exactly the same except the sn95 ones have round holes and the new edge ones have rectangular slots. Are you looking at the two piece cowls?

Edit: I found one on amazon for 99-04s but it says it wont fit the 94-98s. Now Im curious to why that is since dimensionally theyre the same

They are like night and day. Compare the two side by side, front and back. AM has a good view of both.

It looks like the front of the 94-98 one comes up to meet the hood whereas the 99-04 one is flat. Otherwise, theyre the same general shape but I see why theyre not interchangable

Cool, thanks everyone! Thought maybe I'd get lucky, but I guess not.
