I don't know if anyone has tryed this yet, but I was tinkering on my 69 camaro today and went to get somestuff out of the trunk of my storage shed(85 Jetta) and found an extra windshield wiper setup from the jetta. I took it to my camaro, and was suprised that it was very close! the jetta settup is shorter by about 1/8 of an inch from between the center of left to center of right. I added a plate to the firewall over each stock windsheild wiper hole, dimpled it to raise the wipers slightly and it fit pretty well!! I had to cut off the lower mounting bracket from the assembly and spin the motor around so it would fit, but I think it is going to work good. I also had to shorten the wiper arms about 6 inches, but I'm going to junkyard shop for some that fit without shortening them. anyhow, it fit, and now there is extra room in the engine compartment. I'll take pictures when the settup is finished and anyone who wants to try it, email me and I'll help with any questions I can answer.
