First what is wrong with the wipers? Do you want handles to have re-chromed?

If the ends are pitted, there is not much that can be done.  I have used a glass beader to lightly even out the sheen on 69 wiper arms, but I think the earlier year wipers might have been more polished.  I have used 69 Camaro door handles that need rechroming Smiley

the arms lost points at legends and they do need refinishing.  I don't think they were chrome originally, I think they were a dull silver.  04D 69 Z built in Van Nuys

Thanks for the input

The wiper arms that were on my car when I purchased it in 1976 were/are a dull silver/aluminum bare metal finish.   Although I painted mine flat black when I purchased it to further minimize sunlight glint off them, that black is mostly gone now.  I do not know if the arms on my car are the factory-original ones or not, but they would be an early replacement if not.  Note:  I do have NOS wiper assemblies for my '69 Corvette that I purchased at a swap meet in the '70's.. and have never installed; still in the box, but I don't know if the Corvette units are the same/similar to the Camaro or not; the Corvette wipers are hidden under the wiper door, so aren't subject to sun-glint as are the Camaro ones, and that might have led to a difference in the specification provided to the wiper suppliers?   I can go pull the corvette wipers from their box and photograph them if anyone is interested;  I can't recall if I ever even looked at them?

The '69 Corvette arms are completely different than the Camaro arms - no similarity at all.
