Hi b4zz. Only just found your build thread, liking the mods, crystal side repeaters with carbon wing mirrors look really good, much better than the fly eye, and especially like what you have done with the engine bay, lovin the stainless and the dipped skull pattern looks sweet. :D .

Interesting combo there Lenny. Out of the lot, I reckon the Tradol is the most powerful/effective one. Side effects include constipation. So watch what you are eating and add more roughage to your diet, just in case ;)

Btw, double check the dose of Paracetamol as it's either 500mg or 1000mg three to four times per day :)

 

Back on topic, carbon wing mirrors are really nice. They look the part and with your car colour adds a bit of bling, in a good way :)

What's next on the list of mods?

Mate Tradol is the business, hot bath and some chill out playlist from YouTube can of monster and two tradol i could lye there for 3 hours but seemed like 25 minutes lol
Does say may cause constipation but feels like I'm walking on cotton wool cant feel much also causes swelling of my glands in throat, and excessive sweating also drink a lot of water, slight waves of Euphoria aswell but that's all good. :)
Needless to say i don't take em 3 times a day as prescribed more like once every 3 days as im afraid of doing further back damage when i cant feel it atall.

the base elbow cap lifts up to reveal a nut on a bolt,
Remove nut and the wiper should lift off.

it should do mate,
Same as front wipers the bolt has teeth,
Wiper slides down on the teeth then secured with the nut,
Lift wiper up like your changing it,
Then pull back a slight bit more and wiggle it,
Try not to use anything to pry agenst the glass.

Maybe try some/lots of WD40 to loosen it up. My front wipers were a nightmare to remove. Good luck :)

after
DSC00865_zps9f6edd06.jpg
imo the wiper now ties in better with the tinted rear window
I bought a rear zetec s diffuser off yunii in carbon fiber its the one from china but am very pleased with how it looks.
got this week off from work so hopefully weather plays ball and I can see about getting it fitted.
