Call me "Old School", but I really like my air wipers.

When I'm alone at night on a rainy highway, the sound of my air wipers cycling back and forth...sometimes stuttering, sometimes slowing, they have to ability to transport me back in time.

They can take me back to a much simpler time, when I was growing up in Mobile Alabama in the 1950's, and the cars and trucks I rode in all were equipped with vacuum wipers.

That steady his back and forth hissing of the air wipers has the ability to let me forget the sad current state of the world, and be 10 years old again!
Am I ready to give that up? HA...Not likely!   Grin

I have put rebuilt motors on my air wipers and they work just fine.  I don't  use them much anyway because I keep RainX on the windshield and I don't need them. I use them just to keep them exercised.

Andy, the Aguapel is a far better product than Rainx it is used by the airlines.
A 3 parts vinegar and 1 part water mixture works good also 





good luck

Where do you find Aquapel? I'll give it a try if it is better than RainX.  Andy, I have used the spray, but I wound up just spaying on the cloth to apply becuse it gave me better control. So I just buy the pour bottle.

When I use rain-x,  the drops tend to not go any where toward the center of the bus,  just kinda dance in one place Cheesy.  Part of the brick aerodynamics I guess.
