    1976 Wiper Arm replacement

    Yeah, so I had my car repainted while I was on vacation for
    2 weeks. Looks very nice. Thanks, dudes.

    So, first rain we've had since I got back and, uh, I got to
    watch my driver's side wiper arm sail off onto the Baltimore/
    Washington Parkway at 60mph this morning. Thank god for Rain-X!

    Anyway, some vendors want more than $120 for a replacement arm!
    Surely there are less expensive alternatives. Any suggestions?
    This is a daily driver, so I really want a quick and cheap (but
    functional!) solution. I've tried the search engine and get SOME
    hits (Trico TR51-151 from 1motormart for $17...sounds too good
    to be true).

    Second, is it worth it to try and make the body shop buy me
    a new one? Is the onus on me to make sure every single thing
    they may or may not have disturbed while repainting is put
    back on properly? I mean, what the hell, I could've DIED if
    it was snowing or dark.

    thanks,
    Bigby

    Re: 1976 Wiper Arm replacement

    FYI,

    I bought a Trico, model 51-151C Wiper Arm today for $19.99
    at my local Auto Parts Store. Took me about 10 seconds to
    fit a new blade and it fits perfectly on my '76 2002. Good
    thing, too cuz it's raining!
