    rear wiper removed

    just done a quick photoshop of my car 'de-wipered?' and was wondering if anyone one heres done it
    i've been thinking about it for a while but never got round to it coz of needing to fill the hole and respray etc.


    1. i never use the rear wiper anyway
    2. it needs a new blade so i'm putting off buying a new one lol
    and
    3. i thought it might even look alright aswell maybe??

    so whats your opinions??

    Looks all right, Its ok if you don't actually use it. Mine back window always gets covered in road grime etc and I hate not being able to see out of it. One of the first things I did when I got my car was re wiper it, due to the wiper and motor being missing and a loose gromet shoved in the hole

    there is no need to mate, as its just a photoshop at the moment, and they are looking for opinions
