As the back of the up is all glass, I could modify my wiper so that it just goes round and around, instead of backwards and forwards!!!

THEN,I could add a speed controller so it rotates up tp500rpm, this keeping all water from the screen at all times!!



I should work for VW design!

Think of the screeching when the blade wears out every time you use it

What about a rotating window like on ships? Part of the window is a circular rotating disc which keeps clean by the centrifugal force...

Lol, I've had my pills, but I think they may need reviewing..


My next design mod will be a turbo fan with 87 inlets. When operated, the machine will suck in all spray from around the vehicle before it has time to touch the bodywork. Thus removing the requirement for mud flaps and the car wash. The collected spray will then be sold back to the water company, like they do with electricity if you have solar panels.

Neat idea but rather than collect all the water which could compensate economy and handling, I'll opt for passing some of it through a fine filter to top up the screen wash reservoir. The mucky stuff that's left can then be ejected out the rear at the press of a button over anyone who dares tailgate my up!
