    I have the hidden wipers and I have tried several auto stores and they look it up but they are too tall to clear the hood. Anyone know of a brand that would work on a 72 Camaro. If you have some for sale I would be interesting. I doubt I will be driving in the rain much, only if I get caught off guard so it is more about the look.

    To work with the Camaro depressed wiper system and fit under the hood, you need to reuse the original stainless steel blade holders. None of the generic replacement blaces with their own holder are low enough. Look for something like this.

    Take a tape measure with you and measure height of everything they have in the store. Buy the lowest profile ones.

    This kind of replacement will NOT work. It has too much clutter.

    Look up Trico “18-2” for the blade and Trico “43-180” for the refill.

    Can you use just the refills or do you need the blades too ?
