    I like two wipers on one switch. The original, starboard, wiper is on a separate switch. If I would change anything, I'd put all three wipers on a single switch. Don't use separate switches. It would be a pain to turn on 3 wipers every time you need them on.

      I am going ahead with this project. My stock wiper on the starboard side is a 22" blade. Did you increase to the maximum of 24" blades on the new ones? If so did you replace the starboard side blade too?

        The new blades are 22". I wanted matching lengths of the blades. Good luck with your project. It wasn't difficult, but I measured several times before drilling holes in the cabin top. Putting center and port side wipers on the windshields has been one of the best improvements I've made.
