Painted Windsheild Wipers?

Anyone have any experience with painting windsheild wipers? I was thinking about painting mine white to match. Anyone know the prep-work involved, removal? etc?

Look at the base of the arm, on the top of the base theres a small arm coming out. Pull that to the windshield, and pull up. Installation is the opposite, you just have to match it up, so the wipers dont go off the side.

Second take on painting windsheild wipers. This was a rushed photoshop, done quickly, and also shot quickly in the rain. I like this much better than the previous photoshop but i will try to do another better one tomorrow.

well, if you were to do the arms, i would have recommended sticking them in the oven for a bit to "bake" the paint on

cause the first rock will start peeling the paint off
