Operation: Refurb the Scuttle and wiper arms
My Wiper arms & scuttle panel were really showing their age, with paint flaking off and severe weathering.
Over the last few weeks I acquired used scuttle panels and some wipers from an ebay breaker, some new Alfa wiper blades with spray bar clips from partsworld UK, some satin black Hammerite, wet and dry paper and set to work.
I rubbed down all the used bits, resprayed them and they all came up like new. I fitted the new wiper blades and pipework to the newly refurbed bits.
It took me about 45 mins to swap the new shiny bits today for the old stuff, and that included a good clean of metal work under the scuttle and all the other hidden grubby bits.
Really satisfying and easy job for anyone else out there.
Think i might now refurb the bits I took off so I have a spare set.
