    perfect little mod.
    i love the small changes and upgrades compared to the bigger kits and more obvious stuff, this type of modding has more subtle class.
    good job sir, how long did it take what was involved ect?

    it took about 45 mins, all you do is remove the old wiper arms and fit the new ones in their place only modding needed is 3 washers on the drivers side to stop the nut running out of theard and 2 washers under the passengers side to raise it up slightly so it doen't catch the window rubber and also 2 washers on the top again. The passengers side wiper blade needs about 20mm cut off the end so it doesn't catch the A pillar trim, job done.
