    I would love to update my windshield wipers to the best possible ones I can on my 67 ranchero. Something that will handle the ice etc in the quickly approaching winter. Anyone have any leads or links? thank you

    Most wiper manufacturers like Anco or Bosch offer winter blades. Just don't expect them to actually remove ice from your windshield; that's the defroster or a scraper's job.

    Wiper blade manufacturers love it when the wipers get turned on while frozen to the glass.

    It doesn't do the splines on the aluminum arms any good either. We use a lot of external star washers under the mount nuts during the winter, cheaper than new arms. The window frozen the belt molding seal takes out a lot of window regulators too.

    Use Silblade! May cost more but they last.
