Has anyone seen this type of wiper "stop" and door handle before ?

The wiper stops look standard with the front bit cut off ???

Seen that type of wiper stop before, could possibly be S1, the door handle is creative.

The wiper stop is standard for a Lucas CW1 wiper, as fitted to series 1s so quite possibly a carry over, or a PO addition from what was available at the time.

wiper sorted - thanks

Whay would you go to the trouble to "weld" on a mechano set screwdriver onto each side lock instead of the original handle back?

DId they have handles of the same type as later ? - early handles with no locks, which I was sure had the same handles

I'd like to bet those screwdriver handles are longer than the LR original.
As such they would be easier to reach, especially for larger people in the seats.
