Headlamp wipers.

Due to unfortunately putting the brackets (#9) into powdercoat, it melted the rubber/plastic bushes.

So I am looking for some. Condition unimportant as long as the bushes are in good condition.
They are ALWAYS rustier than you thought!!!!!!

Ron, I'm curious, what part are you looking for here? 11?

Yeah number 11 is end of life. I'm also struggling to get that part. Will probably make it from something

I have a rough set of wipers, motors etc, but the two no 11s are crumbling bits of rubber. Think I saw Brucey was using shrink wrap on his wiper resto thread on here.

Shrink wrap instead of #8 on the exposed shafts.

If you can draw one in CAD or scan it, I will print some out of resin. Let me know the type of material that it is and I can try to match it. I cant promise anything, but it will for free.
