Will do. My thinking was to get a pair in and make sure they are what I think they are.

Thank you! I'm almost positive they are just the "old style rubber blades" from TriCo; slide the old ones out & slide the new ones in, if I'm remembering correctly. Been a while since I had the Cutlass. Sad

Yeah...that's what I'm expecting, anyway. Just like we used to have to do back in the day. I just wanted the Laguna to look period correct with the original stainless wiper arms...not that I'll probably ever use the wipers. You know...planning on it being a fair weather driver and all.

Got the Trico refills in and they are what I remembered. Note when ordering (I had forgotten this)...each package contains a pair of blades. Installing them brought back memories how putsy they can be compared to the easy install of wiper arms nowdays. Still, I like the original look of them on these cars.

And, installed on the arms waiting to be put into service on Project Laguna!

They look good! Were all Laguna wiper arms painted or is that my bad eye's again? Shocked

My 77 Chevelle has bright stainless arms, no paint.

Still haven't found your glasses, huh! Kidding!! No...these are the same bare stainless/metal ones found on all these A bodies.

I didn't know there was a special tool!

I just use a small tack puller to release the little tab while prying up on it. I could see where a special tool would make this a little easier.
