I can highly recommend Car Builder Solutions, incredibly knowledgable and helpful.

They developed and made the Foreman P4 cars, so know a bit about these things.

Ian
Very happy customer.

Re: GTD wiper arm needed

Thank you Ian!
I have looked around in there and will be contacting them if I cant find it here. in the next week. I was caught in a little rain sprinkle and remembered I had no wiper. The solution was to drive faster so the rain slid off the windshield...

Standard GTD wipers were always a Peugot Arm and a Rover blade, both UK parts

Re: GTD wiper arm needed

The CBS arms are too short, I know as I bought both lengths...

I plan on getting my wiper arm from here: Tex Automotive Ltd. - Wiper Arms

Re: GTD wiper arm needed

Are any one of you clairvoyant, or remote viewers? that would help out quite a bit in this situation. If you can remote view my wiper arm connection it may help. Or maybe I should just take a picture of the darn thing!
