Re: Before & After photos - Canvas Installation

The canvas looks great! The boat looks really sharp, I've always admired the wide beam on the Internationals.

Looks good Dave!

Re: F-26 Hardtop Anchor Light

This photo is taken from inside the head compartment with the headliner removed. It will give you an idea of how the wires were run up to the windshield.

Re: F-26 Hardtop Anchor Light

My wiper motor isn't original, I had to replace it a while back. Sorry it didn't help, there has to be some type of set screw on it, maybe under the arm?

Re: F-26 Hardtop Anchor Light

My wiper arm is held on by a phillips head screw on the top center of the arm where it attaches to the wiper motor shaft. The shaft is splined, mine does not have a set screw.
