    Looking for advise on install EZ wiring universal windshield wiper kit in a 1938 Chevy coupe. How did you determine where to install the wiper transmissions, what wiper arms were used? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I looked up the EZ wiring kit online and it looks like the same setup as the Specialty Power Windows kit that I used in my 38 Chevy coupe. Specialty sells some bezels to use on 37 and 38 Chevys. Below is a pic of them from their website. I used some after market angled wiper arms.

    TO Lobucrod thanks for the information, but how did you determine where to install the wiper transmissions & would you happened to have a temple or a close-up picture of them on your car? Thanks again

    I am assuming by the wiper transmissions you are referring to the parts that the wipers attach to. The bezels in the picture fit in the original holes in the cowl that the factory transmissions were in. Now if you are referring to the electric motor part of the kit I mounted it on the far right side of the inside of the cowl behind and to the right of the glove box.

    EZ is a knock off of the better guality Specialty wipers, in form only. You can mount them most anywhere because of the built in versatility of the kit, keeping in mind they don't like more than a 3" radius on the tubing. Make sure you have room for the wiper tranny on the other side of the hole you punch...................

    If you're looking to save some coin, might want to check out the lucas cable driven setups that came standard on many british cars (essentially what these kits are based on)

    NZ, Australian and UK rodders have been using them for ever.

    Flat Ernie did a great tech article on his install:
