Default Windshield wiper

After looking at some of the Blue Ridge Tour pictures I realized that some folks spent quite some time using their wiper(s). So, I was wondering what the thoughts are regarding electric or vacuum or hand. I have a pretty good vacuum unit to go on my car but none of the items needed to make it operable.

If you're talking about your Avitar, personally I would go with an electric, chrome of course (haha).

The suppliers have all the mounting parts, on-off knob, arms, blades, etc. Bill W.

The windshield frames have different hole spacing for original vacuum and electric wipers. You can't freely swap one for the other. Check your spacing first.

Mike, would that apply also to an Early '29 Coupe? I have lots of "funny" holes. Bill W.

Marco posted hole spacing for windshield frames. I'd bet they are on his site, or in the J/S.

If I had JS to read, I'd probably NEVER get this thing going! It doesn't rain here in the summer, anyhow, just HOT!!!!! Bill W.
