      Raingear or DSE, Which hidden wiper system?

      I need a wiper system and like the idea of hidden motor systems. Opinions on what brand? Pros? Cons? Edited to add: 68 Camaro

      In for the replies...I want a completely clean firewall, so I'm leaning towards the Raingear setup. The DSE piece is very nice I'm sure, I just want a smooth firewall.

      I just installed a Raingear set up in my 67 Camaro- very straight forward and easy with solid instructions. Didn't take much time at at besides cutting out the old sheet metal and installing a new patch ( i cut the whole area out and fabbed my out patch out of 18g sheet metal to be completely smooth rather than the patch provided in the kit).

      High quality parts/kit.

      Here's a good youtube video to help as well.

      Thanks,
      John

      I haven't got my car on the road yet but the rain gear is a very well engineered kit. Install was like 2 hours and pretty easy.

      Guess I should have updated this. I went with the RainGear and couldn't be happier. Great set up, easy install and works. Love it

      Thanks!
      I followed the rain gear instructions to the t. It describes drilling the hole between 4 a d 6 inches from the center of the driver wiper drive mount hole. I went with 5". You get a rubber grommet with it and just run them through it. I drilled it as high in the cowl as a drill and bit allowed for water shedding reasons.
      I've wound up drilling quite a few holes in the cowl panel between rain bear, vintage ac, and my ecm mounts etc. I used a rubber washer and at stainless washers alonng with 1/4"X20 allen head stainless for all bolts. My cowl pan will be sealed in the original one vented cowl panel holes so water won't be an issue anyway.
