Default Hey Question

I have a 1987 Mustang GT T-Top 5.0 ..

had an accident awhile back...

hood flew open

maybe some of you remember --

just wondering...the cowl plate -- am I better off getting it removed and then replaced with a new one (it has to be removed with a weld) or get it banged back up and smoothed out??

if you guys forgot here's what the cowl plate looks like

this is a common problem with these cars..I have 2 of mine the same [email protected] 75mph put a nice dent on my top as well..to replace the cowl is some work..using a hyd. dent puller can help or the new tack weld puller which leaves no hole....friend of mine used the blowup bags to push someof the dent out...
