Can you weld stainless or know someone that does it? You could get another used set and cut the sections out and weld them in. Need to be sure of the series or grade of stainless wire/rod as original stainless though. I want to say it's 300 but not 100%. If its not the same series or grade welding wire or rod, it will appear goldish on reworked area. I have never welded stainless but I'm sure someone will chime in.

:confused0024:No wipers?!? At all?!? Holy Guacamole...... Guess I'm 40 years behind the times.

I cannot even begin to get my mind wrapped around that. I thought there might be some sort of aftermarket wiper setup like those on the newer cars and the wiper escutcheons needed to be repositioned or some such thing.

That would be your best bet, cut & shunt the pieces you need, it can be done but not too sure on the $$$

This is what I learned after posting a thread on the same subject.One Co. does reproduce them and the stainless is very thin and a bad fit.The member in Texas has tried unsuccessfully to weld in patches but to no avail.
