I had to make a pocket in the cowl for the wiper motor shaft. This was the best angle I could get and still have it cover the wind shield area needed. Ill put a bottom on it with a drain tube simple answer to a bad design. Use what you have...My seats came but will not fit. I need another 1.5 inches in width. So I had to cut out some tubing bars and change all my seat belt brackets as well as change the bends in my shifter all to get clearance . This took all day cutting and relocating things.. I finally got both seats to fit as far back as possible. They are not bolted in yet ill do that the last thing after I finish the seating and dash areas. Tons of work left to do yet. I had to get rid of the seat adjusters sliding brackets. They perched the seats to high by 2 inches. There is no where to slide the seats anyway. They are as far back as they can go now. Probably had I done better planning I could have escaped this trauma. Live a learn what's done is done. I fabricated a box maybe for a 3rd brake light in the rear. I made this from scraps when i was adjusting the mig after changing a new reel.

I had to get to the wind shield wiper motor. So I can button up the top metal (cowl). I scrounged up a rear wiper motor single speed from a 1986 Merkur. I think it will cover 85 % of the wind shield. It makes a large swath that's why i chose this motor. I only want one plus i donít have room for 2. I fabricated a quick bracket to see if I had the correct location it seems I do so Ill make more tomorrow. I will have to cut and do some bending on the wiper arm. Its hard to get the motor shaft to just protrude slightly. So that's where i stopped and will make a small tunnel for the shaft to clear the cowl outside.I had to reverse the mounting plate as I needed it to face the driver end and not face the engine. It takes a good angle. got some snaps

Idea to save cash I made adaptors to fit my Makita 4 inch grinder so i can use other discs that are cheaper in price and have a different arbor size. Here I used Makita and Dewalt Dewalt has been the cheaper so far.
