Nice work! Looks like there are two wipers on that arm, does that mean it's a dual pantograph arm? I've never seen one with two wipers before!

Ha! Fooled you...there are THREE wipers on it!

I met a man with a dollar, we exchanged dollars and we still had a dollar. I met a man with an idea, we exchanged ideas and now we both have two ideas!!!

Excellent craftsmanship on that dual wiper arm there  :LL:  Just kidding on the dual wiper arm part, seriously though that is very nice work especially for it being all hand made.  ::thumbup

After too many hours of trying to find a decent thread on what actually works for a Diablo wiper, I came to the conclusion that I just have to roll up my sleeves, and make something that is well, basically a Diablo wiper arm.

I'm sure that you guys realize that there are basically NO good photos of real Diablo arms, so you know that this was a beach to design.

Oh yeah, for all you guys calling these things "dual wiper arms", I kinda cringe when I see that. They are known as Pantograph Arms.

It's all stainless steel, including the hand-whittled base. The transmission-to-arm pin (not shown) is from a late-model Malibu. The wiper motor (not shown) is from an Audi A8.
