Wipers completed

Found new wiper arms and blades for my car as the ones I had originally purchased 125BC looked pretty period correct but alas my car isnít really that so might as well get todayís stuff on it. My system is a marine wiper set up so looked at Ongaroís web site and found these. 16Ē on the driver side and 11Ē on the passenger side with adjustable arms. The arms adjust in and out as well as the blade angle. Covers the good majority of the windshield, and looks good doing it!

John,
Wipers look great. I also have the Ongaro marine wipers. One of my wiper motors was working intermittently so I am about to replace it. It should be delivered today. Are you using the wiper control to sync the motors? I am hoping that is not the issue with mine but they are not too expensive if it needs replacing. Worst case, I will have an extra wiper motor for the next build.

Rob,

I do have the controller. Hope it is a simple fix for you.

Rob, I have the marine wiper motor also and am not satisfied with the 110deg sweep. It seems like the wiper will come up 10deg past straight up in front of the driver (tested w a coat hangar wiper )
Do you guys have more deg of sweep somehow?
