ahhhh you beat me to it, i really wanted to do this mod but got caught up with wheels and suspension. did you install? if so did you have to cut the stock piece where the wipers sit? it looked like you had to for this mod.

yea i did it, took me two tries but the second time i got it. ill give a rin down.
1. you do have to cut the cowl that gaurds from water drainage, but the OEM one
had wholes in it anyway for drainage, so i didnt mind

2. removed old arm and motor, and removed motor from old arm. then comes the fun part.

3. MOVE THE ECU to a better location. the directions suggested 80mm from the closest swing
of the single wiper arm. this was difficult. had to remove the alarm horn and the bracket that
holds the ecu up. i put foam rubber under the ecu and strapped it to the car with zip ties.

4. connect old motor to new arm and install. this was the easy part once the computer and
wires were out of the way. i never put the alarm horn back, just cause i didnt feel like it. there
is another one for the steering column horn anyways!

5. cut the cowl straight in the middle in kind of an upside down pyramid shape. the bonrath kit will
come with a filler for the while you cut so i recomend this kit the most even though i didnt use one.

6. then you can put the cowl back on and install the blade. lots of fun!!! looks great though and works
like a dream. never seena wiper arm throw water like this one!
