In the hopes of turning lemons into lemonade, Fitzy, does it look like the wiper blades will fit at all to the car? Or is the mounting just totally wrong and you have to return it?

I agree with Kiwi, this is not like Ames, but manure happens. Sadly.

Frosty - put your glasses back on. Kiwi received the wrong stuff, not me. Unlike his bucket of bolts, mine came complete with it's original superb condition correct blades. I can't help it if my car was the better purchase.

So Kiwi  - are they even similar? Can you make them fit? I wonder if older Holden ones would work?

I have NEVER received anything other than the correct parts on time from Ames, so this is most unusual. Does the label part # coincide with the invoice and what you actually ordered?

Nice work, Kiwi. I was going to do mine but couldn't cop the ridiculous cost. I'll get by with mine - they are nowhere near as crusty as yours and are for the most part complete, although any semblance of pliability disappeared about 30 years ago.

I have never seen seals as crusty as mine where mate ! I certainly  had to replace them 👍

Seems like a deal. The Big question would be if there is rust issues.
