Forward progress abound wiper arms have been cut down. I was planning to fit them but bocsh had other ideas a 17" wiper in a 15" box!

Moved on to the washer system.

I'm using discovery headlight washers for the windscreen. But needed to cut down the jet housings and change the angle they sit at. This then needed a spacer for the underside so they would bolt up.

I've also fitted a proper cooling fan switch which meant drilling and tapping the housing.

You must be glad to be working on it again.

The washer jets look tidy, and I know those ones put out a fair squirt. Are you running a standard defender pump for them, or something man size?

The washer bottle is similar to the later defender under wing bottle but I got it at Sodbury years ago. However it was undrilled but had the recess for the headlight washers pump. So I've fitted the headlight washers pump off a disco just need to alter the wiring to run the pump with the screenwash. 

It is really nice to be working on it again but now I just want to get it on the road now.

That looks fantastic :)

A friend once got dragged from his discovery by a bouncer and had it confiscated by the police for turning the headlight washers sideways and squirting people queuing for nightclubs so they must be fairly powerful.

I had this set up on the tomcat the only downside is it uses quite a lot of water. But it is very effective at cleaning the windscreen.
