I was going to make some urethane bushing mounts for it. and something else I forgot all about was I could actually have a working heater and defrost if I did this We just had a snow storm here the other day and getting home was an adventure...... stopped traffic and snow just building up under and to the side of the wipers.... lol.... it was fun
poor bastards c.c.
