Hi guys !
Something is bothering me on my car. I believe the wipers are too visible, even with hood height adjusted and passenger wiper arm / blade fully resting on its stop thingie. It is especially the passenger wiper which is concerned. The driver is quite OK.
I have been browsing the Internet and watching some episodes from the show to find some reliable comparisons on stock cars and cars from the show. From some nice shots of the original cars from the show, it seems you have quite a big space between the top of the wiper blades and the hood lip when the wipers are off. It looks like you can put your hand between the two !
On my car, you barely have about 1 cm between the two...
All is correctly adjusted, I mean the hood height with the fenders' lines, the positions of the wiper arms / blades when the wipers are off.
At one moment, I have almost thought to move the hood back, closer to the windshield, but I realised it will not solve the problem, as I am afraid the wiper blades will then touch the lip of the hood, add to that it will mess up the front alignment of the hood / nose / headlights flaps / fenders which is very good.
So I was wondering, were there different type of wipers on 82-92 Firebird (except the fact you had standard vs pulse / delay wipers) ? From what I know, something exists on the Corvette C3, with a recessed wipers option.
Could it be a thickness of the wiper blades ? FYI I have installed standard AC Delco blades.
Thanks for your help
