'64 Nova Cowl Vent

How in the world do you paint inside the cowl vent area on a '64 Nova or any other car with that type of vent for that matter?

I am doing a color change from white to orange. That whole car has been stripped except for inside the cowl vent area -still white. I figure it will get plenty of overspray in there while the car is being painted but how do you assure adequate coverage without getting runs in the vent/slit area?

Is there a way.....

Thanks,
Max

Doesn't it unbolt from the firewall by a few screws and a couple of screws by the top of the doors. I know my '62 was that way.

You dont. Its a one-piece deal, All welded together.

I've seen people use a small nozzle on a sand blaster (to fit in between the grills) to blast the area directly under the vent. You have to have the heater ***., and kick panels out as the media makes a mess. Then they used a airbrush to paint the inside of the cowl (once again, thur the grills) To mask it off for overspray at final painting, they pushed masking paper into the cowl to catch the overspray.

Messy and hard at best...
