    Who has restored the wiper transmission assembly? There are rivets on the assembly on each side of the ball and sockets. Normally I would put these in the blast cabinet to clean up but I don’t want to get blast media in the pivot areas. Looking for tips on best ways to restore these.

    Maybe try vapour blasting if there is a shop in your area,,, it is a much kinder process for finer parts.
