Thanks Matt. I can't remember who had the bolt in wiper motor. I found it one late night searching for parts and didn't order it. I'm going to have to go back and search for it again.

Here's one:

Here's another. It seems from the description you can get a bolt in and add intermittent wipers and possibly adapt it to the original switch.

37 Chevy

Hi Brandon, Lookint at your 37 you have my twin. I also have a 37 4 door. I put a Mustang II front end, new leaf spring rear with a Granada rear end and 3:55 gears a 350 crate engine and 700R4 trans. All my underpinnings were from Chassis Engineering. I am to get it back from the paint shop this week and then the fun starts. I noticed you were asking about a bolt in wiper motor. I assumn you are going to 12 volts. I got the diredt bolt in from Newport Engineering www.newportwipers. This is a direct replacement for the original wiper motor and will use your original assembly. Bolt in the motor hook up the wires and good to go. Good luck, Jack

Hey Jack, that's awesome. Do you have any pictures of your build??

I just got all my braces and mounts bolted up today for mock up. Even though I took great care to try measure as the directions explained, it seems that my IFS crossmember is still 1/8 inch out from my core support. Did you have any issues with things not lining up exactly perfect?

Do you know what kind of backspacing you're going to be using on your wheels. I want to keep an original look so I'm going to go with some aftermarket "hotrod" wheels that look very similar and will have the original style hubcaps.

Thanks,
Brandon

I may be wrong but from the looks of it I'm going to have to relocate my battery because of my Chassis Engineering transmission crossmember. Where are you guys relocating your batteries?

Battery Location

Hey I have an idea for the battery location, pretty sure it will work, just have not done it yet. I was going to mount mine inside the front fender. There is a lot of open space behind the wheel, just make a bracket that will bolt to the frame. This way you don't need to run those long leads to the rear, you should just be able to remove the front tire and slide the battery out if need be. What do you think?

I bought a steel antique picnic basket from the 50s on ebay for cheap, bolted it to the floor in my trunk next to my 50s steel coke cooler. The two look good together and hide all my cleaning supplies, tools and the battery in the basket.

battery box and tool box

Hey Matt, I put pictures of my "battery box and tool box" in my project journal. Take a look and see if this will work for you.
