    single wiper conversion

    Is this possible on a right hand drive vauxhall astra? I think I read on here a while ago that it was available for left hand drive but not right.

    I was happy to accept that till one night a few weeks ago...

    when I passed through a local cruise spot in a town and came across this red astra g, alloys etc so I had a closer look. almost fell back in amasment, it had a single wiper conversion!, vauxhall astra, uk spec by the looks of it, right hand drive, wiper up the middle of the screen!

    I never saw the owner, but I intend to hunt him down next time I'm in his town/area it looked really good, the town was MacDuff if anyone knows it or the owner, (very unlikely)

    so to my point, are they available or has this guy got a custom one made somewhere/somehow?

    he may of just took the other wiper off adam, and just had the one. The only way you could tell if it was a proper conversion if you saw it moving and it did the full sweep of the window.

    I was asking Pete at PVD the other day about them and he still hasnt seen one for right hand drive, which he was shocked by to be honest. I am sure you could adapt the exisiting ones but i have not looked at that yet.

    If you find out any more i would be very interested mate.

    I WAS suspicious of it but it sat in the centre, up the middle of the screen, it wasn't moving tho.

    He stays in a town a good 30mins drive from me but if I'm in the area I'll keep a sharp lookout for him and have the camera ready this time.

    heres a nova in my town, has similar wiper thingy:

    It's got a "courtney"? 2.0 8v conversion in it, sorry bout pic quality. lol
