Completing the wiper motor with help from a friend and a wrecked Lamborghini

Some time ago we posted photos of the completed wiper motor. We had removed all of the parts and restored them to as new condition but a discolouration on the assembly made me think that something was missing. Sure enough some more research revealed a missing rubber boot that covers the drive assembly.

Now the wiper assembly is rare enough but where on earth will we find just the rubber boot? Lucky for us my friend Aaron in California was in the process of restoring an old Lamborghini Espada and happened to have a parts car. Turns out that the Espada has the same wiper motor assembly and Aaron was kind enough to give us the missing part. After a little restoration it is installed on the NOW completed wiper motor assembly.
