Any interest?

I'm going to be installing a rear windshield wiper on my 6th gen. It will mainly consist of junkyard parts and/or new parts. I was planning on finishing the project and just tossing up some photos on Frankenstein's official thread.

I was just wondering if you guys wanted me to do a write up. Trying to see how much interest is in the project. I usually take pictures of everything I do before, during and after it's done but no one ever asked for a write up. The only exception is the 5 speed swap and I'd basically have to do a whole bunch of work for nothing lol. So any interest?

Re: Any interest?

I have been considering doing something similar for awhile now. It would really make a big difference to have a rear wiper, especially on a coupe! I can't tell you how many times I've been unable to see through that window because of rain or melting snow. You are planning on implementing a squirter, too???

Can't wait to see this. What car are you planning on harvesting your parts from?

Re: Any interest?

I haven't decided what car yet, anything I find really will do . A fluid dispenser would be a little tricky but not impossible at all.then I'd have two reservoirs and I'd have to wire the rear one to a separate switch. I need something that takes blades that are acceptably long enough to function, reliable and easy to get parts for. Maybe an Integra or the sir t Accord. since its custom it's fair game and I could use anything really. I'll keep you posted for sure. As soon as I do my other repairs first lol. New tires, rear main seal first .

Re: Any interest?

I don't believe I've ever seen anyone undergo such an installation. Post it up!

Re: Any interest?

this is dope and original! I dunno if it's something I would go threw but I think is a hell of an idea and I'd love to see where this goes and how you go about doing it!

Re: Any interest?

I could have sworn that I saw an Accord coupe in the random photos that appear at the top of the main page with a rear wiper on it. I don't remember whose car it was, but it was done in the mid 00's.

Re: Any interest?

A wiper from a mid-00s Chrysler Town and Country minivan would be common and big enough to get the whole back window lol. Interested in seeing the process

Yup, and you could use the fluid jug from a 5th gen Accord wagon too. Maybe even use a rear wiper unit from a Pilot if you want to keep it all Honda.

Re: Any interest?

I think once my car is running correctly I can do this but moving to florida makes me think I wont need this anymore.
