I normally leave windshield wipers off my builds because they are usually one of the first things to get accidently ripped off or broken, and then you’re left with a hole where it once was. It is, however, a required item for the comp that I’m going to, so on they went.

After deciding where you want the wipers to be, ream a small hole for the small nub on the wiper. Try to make the hole slightly undersized so that the wiper has to be pushed in. The tight fit will help keep the wiper in place.
Before cutting the windshield wipers off the parts tree, I took the time to detail the rubber area with a black marker. The parts tree does a much better job of holding onto the small parts than your hand.
