Windshield Wiper Cowl

So, my cowl is starting to look like crap... does anyone know how to take it off so we can paint it? this would be a nice DIY.

Re: Windshield Wiper Cowl

Also, don't paint it! That's rice! Google a product called "Forever Black" and read the reviews. That stuff is amazing, cheap, and you won't be disappointed!
