If the piece that you are speaking of is the part I think it is, it is an after-market part that covers the area beneath the wipers. Might check the aftermarket to see if it's still available and ask how it's attached.

Yes, thanks. I found it at: https://www.paragoncorvette.com/corvette_parts/instructions/8735.pdf
They say tape or screws.
So I guess the stock '75s just leave this area open?
I've been working on cars -- mostly GM cars -- for over 50 years, but never Corvetts, so a lot of this is new to me.
I am just getting ready to paint the cowl area in my 75. Now that I have it cleaned up I like the open look which is the way they came originally, but of course remember it is what you want it to look like as you are the one driving it.
Vette(s): 1979 Black, Oyster interior purchased in March 1980
I installed one on my 79. I thought about double stick tape but used screws instead. I just drilled a few holes on the lip that the front of the cover sits on. I also put a little tab on the side of the fender in the well, where the wiper arms are , because the ends of the cover didn't conform to the curve of the windshield. They stuck up a little bit. I was able to also screw the ends down and you don't have a gap at the end of the cover at the windshield. I also used a little weatherstrip on the sides of the cover to hide that gap. After it was done, it gives a cleaner and finished look to that area. I also painted the screw heads black to match the cover that I painted black.
