    Got wipers! What about better ones?

    Well, finally got my wiper motor in and, despite fitting the 110 degree Mini wheel they seem to cover the screen on my Minor perfectly . However, the 50 year old wiper arms have a great deal of slop in the joints and I can't say I'm that impressed with the new stainless steel blades tbh. Looking on eBay there is a company doing a set for an MGB roadster that I would think would fit but can anyone confirm this or recommend an upgrade or decent brand to go for please? Also heard a rumour of cutting down Landrover ones? Many thanks.

    Just in case it's of interest to anyone I ended up buying a set of Mini ones and lobbing 40mm out of the middle of the arms, they are much beafier than the Minor ones but I think I may have to invest in some new wheelboxes to eliminate more of the free play.

    Yep, these were what I bought, they turned out to be Bosch blades so I was very happy for the money
