windshield wiper

I am wanting to run a wiper ( even know it hasn't rained for 6 months ) but am having trouble finding one to fit. I have chopped the top 5 inches, and was wondering what other people have done, any advice is helpful

Black 12 Volt Electric Wiper - Speedway Motors, America's Oldest Speed Shop

A simple start that can be cut/adjusted for height. Marine sales also have similar.
I have also used VW beetle and Mazda B series truck wipers.

Here are some examples: just search for hot rod wiper arms -

WRIST TYPE UNIVERSAL WIPER ARM 6-8 INCH - Windshield Wipers - Hot Rod Parts

WIPER BLADE, 6 INCH - Windshield Wipers - Hot Rod Parts

These are what I use on my Willys and they work great.

I think the aftermarket wipers will be to big for you. Espedcially because of the chop. Why not fashion a manual operated one. I saw a nicw one done on a coupe either here or the hamb.

Look for a John deere GATOR UTV wiper, motor and arm is one unit, super easy to wire. One draw back is they are one speed
