Originally this truck came with a single windshield wiper. Thats what it has now, except it's electric. I have a second one that goes with the truck incase you want two. But driving in the rain probably isn't wise with the carbs right out there.
This truck is my version of what a rat rod should be. Everything that matters was done right. Cab floors were over laped to gie it the rigidity I feel is right. Body and bed were mounted with reinforced rubber spacers. Suspension was done with no expense spared. Handles great, safe to drive at highway speeds, hauls ass and looks good.
I didn't spend a great deal of time on the paint and finish body work- door seals because its a rat rod/ hot rod, not a trailer queen or parking lot decoration. I painted it red with Fleet farm Regal red enamel, some urethane hardner added. But if you have a scratch, a ding or need to touch it up, you can get regal red in a spray bomb. Plus if you decide to rat it up with your version of old/rusty what ever, you can make it the way you want without destroying an expensive pain job. I built this to enjoy, not sit in a garage.
The bed floor is made from a single plate 1/8" diamond plate steel with two hinged traps, one to access the battery, the other to to fuel cell. Both sit flush with the rest of the floor. Painted flat black and bolted down with black button head allen bolts. Easy enough to undo if a wood slat bed is your desire.

This truck is an awesome ride, handles like it's on rails and everyone wants to check it out. But remember the body was lowered 7" between the hinges, I am 6'1", 268 lbs. I am 62 years old and pretty beat up. Getting in or out of this truck is not a big deal for me, but if you are 6'5" and 300 lbs, it probably won't be so easy. For anyone under 5'8" it'd be a breeze.
