windshield wiper arms

I have a 38 chevy chopped 4 inches. installed a power wiper kit. now i need arms for the wiper head. Anyone know if i should get the angled ones or the straight ones. What is the best brand to get. I realize that since my windows look like scotch tape the wipe pattern is going to be real small, so I imagine I need one that is trim-able.

I agree, but the law here says you have to have one. as it is I am illegal in many areas of this build.

Straight or angled, it depends on if you put them in the same place as original. if you located them the same as original then get the ones that look like the original, straight or angled. This would be the first thought, of course you can figure out what you need but that is the first thing that pops into my head.

You need to get with the company who sold you the kit. It really depends on how far down the thing returns to rest, where it returns to rest, that sort of thing.
