Use a "trinary" switch that will turn...

Re: MIGHTY WIPER for a '36 tudor?

Yup, it does "fly up" around 60 mph. I just put one of those picture hanger self sticking hooks on the windshield up wher the blade "parks". It's the kind with a pull tab to remove it.
It's been on...

Re: MIGHTY WIPER for a '36 tudor?

I have a Mighty Wiper in my 36 coupe. Works great. One speed only. Only designed for one blade. Fits well behind the header panel.

Re: 1936 coupe side rails

I use some 2" wide 1/8" flat stock. Used the frame to form the shape. Bolted it in and welded some of the edges.
