Re wipers and damage to edge of hood - - has this happened to anyone else? The wipers arms on my Camaro were factory installed ON THE WRONG SIDE... Of course this resulted in paint scraping off the edge of the hood when the hood was closed. My dealer has acknowledged this and will make the paint perfect. Funny thing is, the wipers kind of operate on the wrong side. Any fellow C5'ers ever heard of this before?

I haven't done this... I learned my lesson on our BMW Z3.

In order to clean the windshield with the wipers 'up', you had to open the hood and then you can lift the wipers. So that is what I did. You lift the wipers up off the windshield and they are 'under' the hood. Well once I was done, I just closed the hood.

$90 and a new drivers side wiper arm later and lesson was well and truly learned!

I believe you can only get Plasti-Dip in red, black, clear and white. I was using it to repair the vinyl stripe (black). All in all, the repair came out good. Just need to wet sand and blend the painted side tomorrow.
