  • Wiper motor clean up

    What should I use to dress up the wiper motor with out removing from the fire wall? They were not painted when new. Mine looks bad.http://farm1.static.flickr.com/131/4...00adde0a7f.jpg

    I think the mounting plate was probably black; I know it was in mine. You may be able to mask the cowl and clean everything as best you can with a stiff brass brush. Mask the motor as best you can and spray the mounting plate black, then unmask the motor and spray some clear on it.

    I would suspect others have tackled this and may have some other ideas.

            If you have about two hours to spare. Just remove the radio, un-clip the two arms from the wiper motor cam and unscrew the unit. Them you can use some of Eastwoods paint on the motor, the backing plate and apply the proper decal. If you have really skinny arms you don't need to remove the radio.

                Sounds funny, perhaps, but I cleaned one up with WD-40. That stuff won't hurt things under the hood.
