cowl 1 Rusted on? Place the cowl light in a vise, don't tighten too much, just enough to hold it.
filter wrench
Find a strap filter wrench like this one and snug it around the rusted on bowl. Best thing I have found to get the bowl to come loose.
Cowl 2
Doesn't hurt the bowl or crush the light. Hope this helps!!!

assuming your light is off the car and getting ready to restore submerge in a bucket of warm water or hot and leave sit for 3- 4 hours the water will soften the rust to like mud should come right apart I did a screw jack that was solid rust and it worked just fine

Cool, that may be easier. I worked on this light for a few hours with WD 40 and finally was able to get enough grip on it to loosen and get the bowl off. There may be other easier ways?
I am open to more ideas!

Is it time to mention acetone and ATF again?

We have bought some ATF/Acetone to try. Sounds GREAT.
