Wiper arms look smart.

Just need to get blades now, the current ones are non existent.

Twisting one spindle with fingers, also attached to wiper motor- liberates easy movement of the one on the other side. This is good!

Found the reason for the big washer on the control, that's been overtightened and the thread is buckled. That'll prove fun to repair.
Gone back with the washer on for now.

8G will be July 1978 or 98... Probably the latter I'd assume.

With the paint fully hardened, I took a look at the fitting of the wiper arms. They appear to be generic replacements.

They were sitting all wrong and almost touching in the middle, overlapping the center divider of the windshield.

Took it all to bits and removed just over an inch of the arm.

Adjusted to the correct angle and length, compared to the original.

Fitted up, in their parked position.

Stepping back to look at how they look. Not bad, pretty tidy.

Just need to get blades for them now. I'm not sure anywhere around here just sells blade refills any more though.
