    Murci Windshield Wiper Suggestions

    I'll try this again since no one responded before.. ;D

    Any Murci owners out there with suggestions for a good windshield wiper arm and motor for a Fiero based G28 car?

    I'm also needing a good lead for an accurate looking gas cap.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    THere is some little junky car that has a similar wiper to the Murcielago. This car is European and is not available in the states, From what I remember it was some small tiny car. I bought a genuine wiper, but I had the info saved at one point for the other wiper. I will see if I can dig it up. You might wanna ask some of the Extreme guys from Europe cause I believe they had a solution.

    As for gas cap, I am not 100% on this but I think Lambolambo moulded one.

    Use the fiero pivot on the body and the motor remotely mounted. You have the harness aready
    Use a Pontiac 6000 wiper arm and build the rest, it's not that hard
    Build in adjustment like I did in these pictures.

    Thanks guys, this is exactly what I needed.

    The wiper doesn't appear to be as hard as I thought it would be so I think I'm going to make this the next part of the car I work on.

    I'll check with LamboLambo on the gas cap since I owe him some headlight pictures and measurements anyhow.

    Thanks again,

    Chris

    1991 Pontiac 6000 (other GM cars too) drivers side. It has the height and the bend at the mount point to clear the hood.

    I made this sketch a few years ago. It is used to determine the secondary pivot point.

    Here is a photo album with a few more pictures of the wiper system.

    Most early 80's Mercedes have the latch and striker that I use. They can still be found.

    Gas Cap or Gas door? I measured the exact location for the 6.0 cut out if you are interested in this. There is a picture in the album above.

    Wow.. I priced out an OEM wiper arm and it's over $1400.

    I've looked for the Citroen C1 arms and they're really impossible to find stateside.

    So.. it looks like it's going to be the Pontiac 6000 arm like what was suggested and I'll tweak it to look as close to OEM as possible.

    This would be a great part to replicate since every Murci builder needs one regardless of who is making the body... hint.. hint. ;D

    Thanks again guys for the help

    The citreon does not have the little bend near the pivot to clear the hood. The Diablo has this bend too.
    It will probably be extra impossible to get a pivot for the citreon too.
