    The bizarre thing is, a mate helping me has a S2 named Albert. His Grandfather was Albert Ernest and mine was Ernest Albert. Neither of us knew that until I named Ernie on the way back from collecting him.

    Based on all this I bought a set of wipers from Whitworths. I was never very happy with the Lucas ones I had, they were pretty worn and would sometimes spark when I turned then on...
    (quite restorable and for sale if anyone wants them)

    I got the stainless version but I thought they were a bit shiny for a Land Rover so I hit them up with the sand blaster and some clear coat. Better now, in my opinion anyway...

    before and after




    And old and new





    If i knew how to post vid you could see them working. Funny to watch, one is faster than the other so they go out of sync pretty quick.

    overall they’re ok, they self-park most of the time but not always...

    Looks good. I bought the black ones, you know the saying, once you've had black etc etc.
    Did you use the small left hand mount as a locator to stop them moving from the torque of the motor?
    I video'd mine too, but buggered if I can figure out how to post it. Keeps telling me file invalid on the upload.

    Ended up stripping the roof this afternoon. There was old style house putty filling the gutter rail. Now to re-seal it and try and level out all the valleys and mountains in the roof

    Found this stuff today. Polyurethane
    Sealant from Holts auto paints. Stick like **** to a blanket, flexible and paintable. $20 a tube. Used about 3/4 of it.

    Ya think I got it all, Not a chance!. I sanded it all back last night, but it's still all over the place like a mad woman's breakfast. This'll take a while to sort.
