I love them. 200+ mph & not even a flutter.

We've got a GT in the Shop tomorrow for a few days so we can finally finish up our adjustments on the fly.

A major update shortly!

Seems like the looks are there.....what about function? Do they wipe well and if so do they at speed as well? Do they get out of the line of sight?
They wipe normal as I tested them up to 80 mph and I was in rain for about 6 hours on my back from VIR.
Washer coverage of my prototypes needed improvement and I indicated this to Andrew when I got back and reported.
Line of site is excellent - not quite as good as going wiperless, but almost as good and a gigantic improvement over the factory originals. As I have about 34,000 miles on my car and most of them wiperless, I plan on keeping the new wipers installed at all times - once I get a set of my own!
IMHO the car looks way better with them on the car than even going wiperless.
Keep in mind that these were pre production and all my experiences an suggestions have been incorporated into final production sets.

Well done once again Andrew!

Wipers update!

Newsflash!

Wipers Update!

Here are some photo's!

- Passenger side: Fitment - Perfect!
- Driver side - a few more tweaks - we still need to move the arm unit slightly lower and we will be good for production!
- We have a final size for the BOSCH Blades
- Finalizing the location of the integrated washer nozzle.
- Pricing coming next week

Pre-Orders within the next 2 weeks!

Please post comments about the Carbon Look. We may paint them black for those that want black, but the carbon is looking mighty sweet!

A set of OEM black for my car too. Surprising what you start doing/purchasing even before you actually have the car in your possession :banana

Will have a lot to tinker with when I do finally bring her home for good.

I've been getting a few PM's about the Wipers for the GT.

I've attached a couple of teaser photo's - of work in progress.

Final versions will be made of Carbon Fiber/composite material for weight savings and strength.

I'm also using new technology Bosch Wipers Blades that can be found on most current model Mercedes/BMW/Lamborghini, so replacement blades will be available over the counter at dealerships for years to come.

Stay tuned - we may need some "Test" subjects for HIGH SPEED testing to check for lift effect :biggrin

We're just working on the Hinge mechanism at the moment.





In this photo we are using a mock up wiper blade - not the final mount and blade type.. But you can see the contours of the wipers which have been finalized.

How are these coming?
Do you retain the winshield washers in the arm with the new system?
