1972 Spider wiper posts...
Looks like I am missing either a cover over the entire post, or just over the fastening nut?
(See attached pic)
Anyone know?
Thanks.

I'm not sure the cover will fit IAW these photos.. The spindle and nut seems to be a little too proud ..With proper arms the covers fit. IMHO

Thank you for the responses.
D&T - Are you saying tyhat according to my pix, the nuts appear to be too close to the surface (i.e., the wiper arms' sockets are too shallow?
Thanks.

I, too, was missing these caps on my ‘71 and bought a pair. They never did stay in place and lost them the first time I ran the wipers. Your mileage may vary...

Found some chrome acorn nuts for the wiper arms.
Last (bottom) pic is "before".
Well, it does give a slightly more-finished look, but maybe BLACK acorns would be better. Anyway, not worth another minute of thought or energy.
