Title: For those of us with Hide away WIPERS
Post by: Steve on December 04, 2009, 01:37:25 PM
I have been looking real hard to find replacement wipers that will tuck under that blasted lip on the hood of Polaraco
 
I found something, with a slight mod, that works.  They are the Contour series from Anco  The part number is C-16-UB
 
I had to grind a 16th of an inch off the top of the mount and enlarge the hole slightly.  Splash of paint and here you go.  Maybe they won't be as noisey with my delay wipers now.
 
They look to be very well made have a wind deflector on them and seem to be made of a better material than the regular ones are.  They're just like the Michelin blades, but twice as good in quality.  Expensive suckers

Steve.  Go to a junkyard and find the original type matt finish
silver ones, then replace the rubber inserts. They didn't do black arms back
then. That's what's on all mine.. I know where some are if you want em.

yeah OK. . .
 
Let me see.  4 hours to the nearest yard that might even have anything remotely close, 10 bucks for the parts, hours finding the replacement blades and reconditioning the old arms, 10 bucks for the refills
 
32.00 for these. . .  10 minutes worth of work
 
20 Bucks in parts, 20 bucks in fuel, and 5 hours.

Now you know, there isn't one exit number in New Jersey that even remotely has a car like this around, and these work better

I just bought a pair at NAPA for the Imperial....real silver ones that are a dead ringer for the OEM's and snapped right onto the pivot shafts.   http://www.tricoproducts.com/Trico2/replacement/windshieldwiperproducts/wiperblades/ShowContent.aspx?ID=30 (http://www.tricoproducts.com/Trico2/replacement/windshieldwiperproducts/wiperblades/ShowContent.aspx?ID=30)

"you're 3.5 hours away" ... huh? I can be in Dover NJ in 2 hr 25 min. Isn't that next to Wharton?

I used to go to Moss Motors in Dover for MG parts before they moved to
VA....  You hardly ever get to Willet though.  Me, I can't
take living near congestion... no room for parts cars. I'd think you
should be able to get to Whitney Point in 2 hr 45 min no prob, and I'm
closer.

Hmmm... maybe my son WAS driving that day... do you take 380 from
Stroudsburg to Scranton and then up I-81? Why not just move to Willet
and do your business from there - it's computer related stuff right?
Lots of peace and quiet.. lots of good country junkyards,  and
think of all the room for project cars!!

You just want someone with a big tool box to move up there (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif) (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif) (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)
 
Willet lacks the needed communications resources I need.  Otherwise I would

I dunno - I met a guy (Cornell PhD) up on Cayuga Lake who runs a some
kind of super special server for Microsoft from an outbuilding out
behind his lake "cabin" using a striclty satellite connection! 
It's pretty amzing, they wanted his proprietary technology, and he
refused to license it or move to Seattle, so they paid for it... but it
can be
done!

Oh I do, I worked in the computer software industry for a while...and
my next door Lake neighbor lives in winter in Verona NJ and owns the
company that did much of the fiber optic  in NW New Joisey...I'm
sure it's exorbitant... so you mean you don't have the financial
resources of Microsoft?  My only point was that it could be
done... cost is another matter.
