    Hello All,

    Special thanks to eaorobbie, Yobuddy & bsft for helping me throughout the built.

    Good stuff man, another PVC build. I take it you found the PVC light and fairly easy to put together.
    Should move ok with wipers.
    If you find it struggles a bit, space the motors out a bit and move the connections higher up on the frame.

    Piece of cake.

    Great job @cyberxu :thumbs

    Can you add some written details like what the motor specs are, what pots you used and so on?

    Hi noorbeast,
    The wiper motors I used are honda odyssey which I pickup from junk yards for $25.00 CAD each.
    Seat is from honda civic also from junk yards for $30.00.
    Electronic are k8055 (US$45.00), sabertooth 2x12v (US$85.00) and an old duo core PC ($0.00) which I found in my basement. Lol....I also gone through a lot of 10k potential meter which are cheap $1.00 each.
    I think I most expensive part I spent is the steering wheel... $90.00 CAD (refurbished).
    Pvc piping from home depot ($60.00) and plus hardware as well.

    Pvc build is so easy and light weight, I love it. I have to move my stabilizer hinges from the back to front where my motors located. It gives me more solid feel.

    Nice one @cyberxu.

    Have you considered mounting the connecting point higher on the frame as @bsft suggested? That would help a great deal as well and take a lot of strain off the motors.
