Hi Jc,
Just PM you with the hope that there might still be a set of wipers still available for my 2005 white/ blue stripe. I have owned my car since 2010 and just removed the drivers side sun visor today. What a difference in visibility. Would love to now switch the wipers.

Thanks,
Seth

Just a quick update to those anxiously awaiting wiper sets. The first 10 sets have been shipped. This fill orders paid by June 12. If you are in that group you should have received an email with tracking information. If not, PM me and I will look it up for you. Waiting on parts for the second batch. Those parts are due to me by June 30. Hope everyone enjoys.

Last call, shutting down orders tonight and placing parts orders. Please don't say I did not post a warning. Once the order is placed I really cannot 'add one'.

I have not been past 160 with them. No tendency to lift or flutter up to that point. Someone else will have to do the real high speed testing or just remove the wipers for standing mile day.

Since the Exoticare CF wipers project never came to market, I decided to see what I could do for better visability wiper arms/blades etc. Have tinkered more than a bit and tried lots of different combos and fabrications. I think I am close to something that is reasonable as a retrofit for these cars. I am not doing carbon fiber. Working with OEM suppliers Trico, Michelin and TRW plus a bit of fab work. I'll post some pics in a few days when my last few parts are in and a complete install can be shown. But I am pretty pleased with the results so far, just some pieces and parts to make it complete.
