Small details...

I really love small details and the GT is full of them one of them that catch my eye the 1st time i sat in it before i bought was the Alfa Romeo on the wiper blade arm, so i decided to enhance it today, dont know if its everyone cup of tea but it's mine.

In attatchement you have a photo of the before and after, used the same paint of my car now it really stands out! What do you think?

P.S: Not the best photos since the day is really bad here.

I really like that

Every time I see the writing on the arm I think that I should paint it so now I know what it would look like, I think it's going to happen soon.

Maybe it's on the underside, the OP has a LHD car. Although I'm sure the arms of mine are much slimmer for more of the length.

What are the chances of LHD arms fitting a RHD car, if, apart from the hooks on the end, they're straight..... they might fit.

All the best

Thanks lads, as far as colors goes i considred the original color, white and red, even if i had all of them i tought it would look better in the original car color. Your car being black i would go with red.

@swampy 76, never took mine off but on my calibra only had to lift the botom part and unscrew the nut and then pull it off, but then again no idea here.

@pub, you are right my car is LHD, not sure if they would fit a RHD but can take more photos if it helps .
