Post pictures of what you have and we can go from there. Just about anything is repairable as long as you have all the peices, well most of them LOL

It depends on what its made from.. If its fiberglass its easy to repair just epxoy resin and cloth..and a lot of sandpaper.. ABS plastic, not so easy to repair.. Why not just made another from scratch as ya got the old one to go by right???
Oh well,, Thats what my options would be anyhow.
Chip,

Happy landings to ya

The other option would be to send it to me and I can get her fixed up for a reasonable price.

See if fiberglass specialties has a cowl or a substitute cowl for it. They have a ton of stuff from years ago.
