Vintage wipers

Has anyone had success locating sources for vintage wipers appropriate for roundtails? (My car has original bosch wiper arms with the 9x3 sized J-hook) How are the ClassicAlfa reproduction versions? Any luck sourcing original Bosch blades or refills? What solutions have you employed? My research leads me to very few options aside from finding NOS or any old stock!

wipers

I did a lot of research on this seemly simple topic but is proving to be the most difficult for my restoration goals. What I was able to do was find a NOS anco replacement blade on ebay which matched the blades that were on the car when I purchased it. Not a concours solution but is acceptible (fit the 9x3 j-hook 13" blade requirement for bosch wiper arms).

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Anc...72.m2749.l2649

I also have an old euro style vintage blade from probably the 80s that needed an obscure out of production bosch refill which I also found on ebay (for a confiscatory price). So one bird is in hand and one is in the bush!

I paid much more than that for my red dots. The rubber blade has split and they have been on the car a little over two years It's a good thing I don't need them.

Read post #19 for a Bosch solution......https://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/alf...-blades-2.html

These are NEW ..not old stock and work with blades not designed for refills. Instructions show how to install them on blades like yours.
