To solve the problem of no windshield wiper because I deleted the Motor hole, I installed a hidden wiper motor set up from Classic Industries

Thumbs up

I love the work you have done, the color looks good. Are you installing the side moldings back on?

I installed the Hotchkiss front and rear suspension on my Camaro, hope to have it back on the road in the next few months.


I also have a similar plan for our 71 Nova and also bought a Speed Tech sub frame. How do you like it so far? How was the install?
