So if we all go to NAPA and ask for WIP 601598 we'll get refills right?

These are the blades you can get from NAPA for about $9. They have the refills for about $5 a pair which I haven't got before. I may pick up a set to see what they look like. These blades certainly aren't assembly line correct but look and work great on my drivers.

That's what I bought for my car and posted such on page 1. They look just like the original to me.

Hi guys, here is the RF-15" refills that just came in, I got the box for these. Has Canada and American script on it. Notice the 3 lines? They are different then the RF-16's that came in for my Impala.

OK Jeff, this is what I can see. I had to break out the 2o foot magnifying glass to get this info.

On the second pic in above post on one side you can see 29A, on the other end same side 75A

Opposite side one end says ONE OR MORE PATENTS (and there are 8 of them) here are 4 I was able to read before my vision went south, these may or may not be accurate but that is what I can see, 3549383, 2687544,2697241, 2756474. I can get the others if you need them. Giving my eyes a break.

On the other end, closest to the clip, 702849 CAN. 52, 55, 58  PATENT PEND.

Here are two pics of the back.

Yes - those are assembly line correct for 67 - 70 Camaros.  And Corvettes Smiley

The blade holders are different though.
63-65 corvette - bright chrome - flat  <Trico>  Dots rubbers
66 Corvette same as 67 Camaro  <Trico> some Corvettes used Anco from the plant in 67.
67 had peaked blade reading <Trico>
69 had peaked blade reading  <Trico> made in USA
70 used the push pin blades like Novas.

somewhere along the line the "squished flat peak" blades were used - may have been in Late 69  I am not sure when the change occurred.

I grabbed 2 more sets - just can't help myself Roll Eyes

Does anyone have any info on a possible 'late 69' change re the above?   I thought the arms/blades on my 09C 69 were original, but they seem to be the 'flat' type (if I know what I'm looking at).. Smiley

I just stopped at NAPA on my way home to check out the WIP 601598 refills. They're just the all black plastic cheap refills. I still want to see the actual Trico refills to see if they look like the ones in their Classic blade.

The RF-15's I just posted a pic of are correct according to Pacecaejeff. Reply #33 and #37 have pics. the Classics I understand are identical but have no Trico stamp on the blade and the refills may be different. Someone here mentioned maybe we can still get refills from the Trico and that most auto parts store won't stock them. IDK

OK not assy line correct but do the look close enough for a driver?
