    Which way is up for the wiper airfoil?

    What is the correct positioning for the wiper airfoil? I know, I could go hunting through pictures. Seems easier to just ask.

    Up is down... The airfoil should be underneath the blade, towards the hood.

    I remember when Grease Monkey was able to tuck his down behind the hood.

    I don't think he ever shared what he ended up doing to make it happen though.

    By memory he rotated them one cog on the motor-spline, and then bent the arms to return the blades to perfectly horizontal.
