    Default DS Wipers

    Hi there

    next question.. A lot of DS seem to have silver windscreen wiper arms and black blades. I've seen stainless steel blades for sale? What were they originally? Is this because replacement blades these days are all black? Would it be a crime to paint the wiper arms black to match?


    Thanks Matthew

    Black arms and blades were manditory in most of the world after 1970.
    I think they were rquired heres from 1972 along with flush mounted exterior door handles and head reastraints on front seats.

    For my money I think the stainless look isn't as heavy looking as the black. Also a little more retro :-)
