J C Thorne, I just received my new low profile wipers. They look like OEM quality. Thank you so much for doing this for all of us.

I was in the process of doing something similar with an extra factory one that I bought but haven't had time. Very interested in what you have done. PM sent.

On another thread there was expressed some interest in these low profile wipers again. If there is enough interest to get a parts order together (about 10 sets) I'd be happy to build a few more. I'll verify pricing on the parts as its bound to have changed in 2 years.

I would be honored to have at lest one set, maybe two depending on the price. You can post or PM me.

Any up-date on the wipers? I'm looking forward to getting them on the GT.
Still awaiting shipment of the arms. There was a delay with the supplier and our (very small) order got pushed back. Now expecting shipment by end of month. Sorry for the delays but they are indeed coming.

Very welcome. I am so glad this came together. When the tooling for the original arms was lost, I about gave up. So sorry it took so long to get it going again. Thanks for hanging in there.

All orders paid by July 05 have now shipped. I am expecting the next batch of part in around Aug 3. I can still order parts for these so if anyone wants a set, just PM me.

OK, no stock Lincoln wipers.

Just picked up the last couple parts to finish the project and took some quick pics. Much improved visability. I have front fenders that I have never seen from the driver seat! Heck, I can see the gas cap and the center of the hood. From my driving position, the wipers are now almost completely below line of sight to edge of hood and fenders, IE no longer blocking view at all. They are also a much cleaner look with the hybrid Michelin support assemblies and new reshaped Trico arms. Even the spray nozzles are out of sight. See what you think:

I will check with TRW and see if I can still order the custom arms. If I can, would be happy to make up some if there are folks that want them.

Awesome JC!

I know you have a full plate, are you thinking you will make a few for others? If so, I am in.

These are PRIMO pieces. Feel fortunate to get a set.

Only thing better is no wiper if you can swing it.
