Re: to much rain
It's amazing what a good BS session and some spare parts will lead to!! I just had some extra of the wiper "thingys" that mount in the windshield. Grinded off the flange that holds the thing together. Pulled out the HEAD and the SHAFT of the pivot, and had a buddy of mine weld it to the back of another one. Then I drilled a hole in the grommet of the windshield frame. Cut a slit to the short side and put it in. Really, it's quite simple.
The passenger side is basically the same, but connecting the "pushrod" from the first wiper is a little tricky.
My buddy that did the welding, constantly gives me crap about them, but we're laughing the whole time. It's just a stoopid idea that I liked. And it works great, specially on LONG WET drives. Last year coming thru Atlanta from Tenn, I spent about 5 hours, taking on water. No problem. But people do look, and laugh!! One guy at a gas station asked me how I kept them syncronized!!! HA HA!!
