Default 1934 Ford windshield wiper

I am converting my 1934 Ford 3 window to 12 volt. I am also going to get rid of that darned vacuum wiper.
Is there any company that sells a good 12 volt wiper motor that will fit in behind the visor panel (?) without having to cut a notch out of it? I have seen rodders who have cut that panel out and half of their wiper motor is sticking out looking real bad.
I want to keep the stock look if possible.
And while on the subject... is there a real name for that piece that covers the wiper motor the the visors hang from?

Check with New Port Engineering. Don't know if they make one for a 34 or not. All of theirs are bolt in and fit where the stock wipers were.

I got one for my 33 from the mighty wiper company,let me know if you cant find them and I will look up the receipt.
It is nice and small and fits under the header panel easy.

Could you please give us the company name and address where you got the wiper that fits under the header panel?.
If you can, give us the model (part number) and please attach some pictures too
