New Wiper
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: I pulled the old wiper and arm and tossed it. I decided to go with a pantographic arm and blade. This required that I use different mounting holes. ARGGGGG! So I glassed a small piece of mat on the inside of the large hole. Then I filled the large and small holes with Coloidal Silica mixed with resin. While that was setting up I built a partial plywood mock-up of the windshield to find the best location for the new holes. The pantographic arm needs to mount in the center of the window's lower edge. I went with an extra powerful AFI wiper motor. I block sanded off my fills, masked off the flat area the wiper mounts to and re-shot the gelcoat over the whole panal. I sanded and fared it in and rebuffed it. I then transferred the measurements for the new holes from the mock-up to the boat...said a prayer and drilled the new holes. Here is the new pantographic wiper. And it works sweet! :party:
