1968 Chevrolet Camaro & Pontiac Firebird Raingear Wiper System
Is the original wiper system on your Camaro/Firebird worn out? Or is the wiper system missing entirely from a project car? Our RainGear wiper system is a modern, high-quality replacement for the old system. It is the only replacement wiper system that is completely hidden, fitting entirely within the airbox in the cowl! This allows you to remove the stock wiper motor. The wiper motor hole in the firewall can be covered up with the cover plate supplied in the kit or you can weld in a patch panel to eliminate the hole entirely. Perfect for Pro Street cars or if you just desire a clean looking firewall.
Please note – if you are using an aftermarket cowl panel, you will need to mock us up prior to paint. We’ve had reports of the cowl panel being too tall and not allowing enough clearance for the windshield wiper arms to fit without rubbing the cowl panel.
The kit comes complete less arms and blades. Your stock arms will fit on our system.
Please note that the RainGear unit cannot be controlled by any General Motors column-mounted wiper switches. You must use the included switch. This is due to the fact that GM switches control the wiper motor via the ground wire and our systems must be controlled by switching the positive wire.
