Need reminder on how lower cowl is installed

I took my tbird's cowl apart years ago and I'm trying to throw it back together now. Can someone remind me of how the 2 lower cowl pieces install as well as the wiper frame? Pictures would be great. I can't recall if the 2 lower pieces overlap and if so which piece is on top.

Thanks
David

It should be self evident. If you're speaking of the pieces that I think you are one piece is molded to slide under the other.

The wiper motor/arms bolt to the driver's side piece. There is also a bracket that attaches underneath and attaches to the firewall with one 11 mm nut.

The piece on the passenger side goes on last, and is attached with 7 mm bolts.

It does take a little bit of effort to slip the whole driver's piece/wiper motor/wiper arms under the metal lip on the body.

The two finish pieces are no picnic. You have to be careful to not break the washer hose. Once you get it in place, it is easiest to put all the screws in from above with the hood lowered.
