I would like to put intermittent (or delay) Wipers on my 69. I've seen a couple aftermarket kits.. Has anyone done this? Which kit did you use? And do you like the results?

I used the Detroit Speed kit. Works flawlessly and is fairly easy to install.

My only gripe, and it is minor, is the switch that makes it all work requires some modification to the dash to look right. The neck of the switch is longer than the stock switch so the knob sticks farther out from the dash and I thought it looked odd. It also leaves a hole because the new switch rotates instead of sliding. I spaced the switch back and filled the hole with a bit of sheet styrene and modelers putty. Problem solved.

If you have non-hidden wipers, I have a kit that I bought in error that I couldn't return. It's been opened and installed, but never really used. Call it an open box special. It's for sale.


The switch after the dash is modified.


The best picture I have of the switch after cleaning and painting.
