Its not a huge job. removal of the wiper arms from the towers depends on whether you have trico, anco or some other wiper arms, but in all cases, its just a matter of repositioning them on the splined shaft. no muss, no fuss.

Oh, and not sure where you are on runningboards, but I do have a pair, rust free metal. Not easy to ship...come get them at Hershey.

Nice car welcome at any show even with bumpers that need to be rechromed.

Any kids who show interest in our cars at a show, I always ask them if they want to get in and sit behind the wheel. This sets the hook early and makes it easier for them to get reeled in when they get older. We need to find any way we can to pass our love of old cars down to the younger generations and letting them sit in our cars is not going to damage anything. Need to make a little sign for our cars.... "Look and Touch If You Want"

Thanks for posting that pic of your car. John. I definitely think I'll try swapping out my brackets. My thinking is when the PO turned the bumper upside down (the top was damaged/repaired by the platers) it probably drooped excessively downward. If he switched the brackets then, it would turn the ends up a bit. Now that it is oriented correctly, they appear (to me, at least) to be 'less than level' and look upturned a bit. I'll post pics after and hopefully the change will be worth the effort! LOL Chris.
