I’ve got a laundry list of things like this to take care of. That I’ve knocked the first two off the list just tickles me.
It’s pretty common for the rear wiper on these cars (Standard on all GT-R’s by the way. I thought that was…..odd.) to become weathered and their finish to wear off. What results is a splotchy, silvery finish which looks like ass. Of course it’s an easy fix with a rattle can full of something matte black.
That’s the “before” pic. Kinda hard to tell but that’s a silver wiper arm and blade body. They should both be black.
When the wiper arm has been attached to the spindle for 25 years – you’ll likely need one of these to get it off.
Scotch Brite, prep spray and trim paint. Not rocket science.
Reinstalled. I used a plastic wiper blade from the local auto parts store. The one I took off was an OEM Nissan part.
The down side to all this is that the rear wiper doesn’t even work. But that’s a project for another day. Fixing it will be less of a necessity and more just for the principal.
The other little detail that I got to wrap up tonight is this…
Broken hood prop retainer FTL.
Fresh new clip FTW.
It’s the little things…
