Hi all.  Hope everyone is safe and well.

I need some help from Zero owners. I have the zero standard chassis, so if anyone can help, that would be great, to make sure I get the correct parts and mount them roughly in the right area. 

I have finally given in and am moving from the aero screen to a full windscreen.

I am measuring up for wipers and need some measurements as follows:

1 - Distance from screen to wiper spindle hole (gap between screen and wiper spindles)

2 - Wiper spindle hole centre to car centre line

3 - Wiper arm length

4 - Wiper blade length

Many Thanks

Steve

Hi

Does the scuttle have the pre cut holes for the screen brackets?

If So

Here you go! CL reference is the tab on the back of the dashboard/scuttle. All measurements are mm.

One thing I would say is remember there's a certain amount of adjustment in the wiper blade (for me at least) they can be varied in length and bent (and they needed it!)

Thanks KT, already been given the 1st picture with the measurements.  Good and useful info.  Must admit I have been looking at the Car Builder kit which looks the same and has options of sweep available, plus is about £50 cheaper!

Thanks again

Thanks Dan. Confirms a lot of the measurements.  Just out of curiousity, why park on the passenger side?  Most I have seen park on the driver's side?  

Cheers

This layout gives way better clearing of screen for the driver, it gets up nicely on the right-hand edge (as the driver sees). I spent a long time carefully trialling and positioning the blades to work out where the holes would go (my car wasn't pre-drilled, thankfully). I was so thankful of these at the Wales weekend the other year - they really made the whole weekend so more "pleasure" than "pain" :). Standard Defender wiper motor in terms of sweep angle/gear.

Cheers Dan. Gives me something to think about!    Will have a play around this weekend. Always good to get another perspective. 

Thanks

That's quite weird - my holes are symmetrical from that CL (2015 GT chassis, holes pre-drilled) so I had a choice which way to park them. I tried them on passenger side but seemed a bit better on drivers side - not much in it.

Thanks all.  I am luck enough that i dont have an holes pre drilled.  This means i get a choice.  Having done some mock up i think i will be copying Dan and go with the passenger side park.

It seems to sweep a bigger area of the drivers side and higher on the screen too.  Having a blank canvass means i can fit the screen and then tweek the wipers to fit.

What could possibly go wrong!!
