WTB: GEn 2 Euro wiper arms and valance

Hey all.
Looking for decent condition Gen 2 Euro wiper arms and valances. I'm trying to complete a Euro restoration on my 1990 SEL.

Thanks,
Greg

Hi, I'm just curious if there is a difference between Euro and US wiper arms. I have had installed Euro lights on my Gen II 126 and transferred the wipers. It seemed like they were a good fit.

Yes, there is a difference. The US version arm is close to a 90 degree angle whereas the Euro wiper is more extended and at a much wider angle ... I'm going to guess 120 degrees.

The US will still work, but the Euro looks better IMO and is designed for the larger Euro headlight lens.
