Appreciate the welcome I have used this site many times and have found it a useful guide. I recognize some of you from other forums.
I restored my 71 Mach 1 several years back now it's my 71 Boss getting the treatment. Once that's completed a 72 Vert will be next. I've definitely become addicted to the 71-73 Mustang for sure
The wiper transmission/arm mechanism is probably not the most detailed part out there but since I've stripped two sets down why not make the extra effort to restore them back as close to original.
Mark - what your saying makes sense with one of the sets I've got. It appears that the the arms were zinc plated on the inside, some black paint was applied on the side that you see looking through the cowl vents and the two triangular bracket mounts (these attach with thee screws to the cowl) these were gold zinc plated. Over the years any attention to restoring these was probably a quick coat of black paint all over which for the most part would do the trick! I also have a repro set of these transmission arms and these are silver zinc plated entirely.
Appreciate the comments.
